Dr. Drew launches his own production company

Is there a rehab program for folks who host too many rehab TV shows?

Dr. Drew Pinsky, of course, might want to look into such a plan. The prolific TV and radio host has announced plans to form Dr. Drew Productions, which will focus on developing new series — both with and without Pinsky on camera.

Pinsky is partnering with manager Howard Lapides on the company.

“All projects under the new banner will expand on the Dr. Drew brand of always making a difference,” Lapides said.

The new shingle is already developing the pilot “Estranged with Dr. Drew,” in which couples decide whether to reunite or separate, along with Picture This TV.

Pinsky is also developing a syndie talker with Telepictures, targeted for a fall 2011 launch. (Lapides is co-EP on that project.)

The busy Pinsky’s credits include VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab” and spinoffs “Sober House with Dr. Drew” and “Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew.” He also host MTV’s “Sex With Mom and Dad.” And on the radio, he continues to host the nationally syndicated “Loveline.”

Lapides is co-CEO of the Core and president of the TV and motion picture division of Lapides/Lear Entertainment. Besides Pinsky’s shows, his other credits include serving as an EP on “The Man Show.”
