Bam! New NBC laffer “Emeril” could become the first scripted series to find a second home on Pax TV.
Sources said Pax topper Jeff Sagansky played a part in getting the Emeril Lagasse-fronted comedy, exec produced by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason, on the air. As a result, Pax may be rewarded with an “Emeril” second run.
Pax previously announced it will start airing a dual window of the Peacock gamer “Weakest Link”; Sagansky also had a hand in bringing that British import to the network.
NBC will air “Emeril,” which stars the Food Network chef, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. this fall.
