Kutcher's reality show to air reruns in fall 2008
syndicated reruns, Trifecta won’t get cash from stations but instead will harvest 3½ minutes within each episode to sell to national advertisers. Trifecta’s New York office, headed by another partner, Michael Daraio, will handle the advertising sales. Hosted by Ashton Kutcher, who co-created the show with Jason Goldberg, “Punk’d” features such celebrity victims as Justin Timberlake, Jessica Alba, Britney Spears, Jessica Biel, Hugh Jackman, Katie Holmes and Lindsay Lohan. Trifecta is launching three weekly series in syndication next month: “Hollywood Shootout,” a syndicated version of the AMC series “Sunday Morning Shootout”; “UFC Wired,” an original hour featuring Ultimate Fighting Championship competitions; and “Into the Wild,” a half-hour animal series hosted by Jack Hanna.
