Golf Channel to tee ‘Trump’

Celebrity series drives to April launch

Golf Channel has greenlit “Donald J. Trump’s Fabulous World of Golf,” a celebrity-infused nonscripted series, for an April 26 primetime launch.

Trump is recruiting actors, musicians, politicians, business execs and pro athletes to compete against each other for charity on the show — which, to be sure, will also offer a heavy dose of friendly views of Trump-owned courses and Trump himself.

The six half-hour episodes, airing Mondays at 9 p.m. Eastern/6 p.m. Pacific, will feature such matchups as NFL legends Jerry Rice vs. Lawrence Taylor.

In addition to determining a winner for the day, the competitions will offer a number of intermediate challenges, such as a pre-determined hole that will be worth $10,000 for the celebrity golfer’s chosen charity.

Skein joins another Golf Channel foray into the celebrity world, “The Haney Project,” whose second season (with Ray Romano) begins in the spring. Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Anderson also host different series on the cabler.

Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” is also scheduled for its next season premiere in the spring, on NBC.

Golf Channel is producing “Donald J. Trump’s Fabulous World of Golf” with Pennsylvania-based the WorkShop.
