'Live from Daryl's House' cleared in top 10 U.S. markets
“Live From Daryl’s House,” a syndicated series featuring Daryl Hall of rock duo Hall & Oates, has been cleared in nearly 80% of the top 200 markets in the U.S., including all of the top 10.Skein, adapted from a 4-year-old Internet series of the same name, will premiere with two half-hour episodes Saturday on channels including KTLA Los Angeles and WPIX New York. Good Cop Bad Cop Prods. is syndicating the series in association with Scott Sternberg Prods. and distributor Trifecta Entertainment & Media. Hall and Sternberg are exec producing with Jonathan Wolfson. “This is a dream come true for me,” Hall said. “When I first had the idea for this series four years ago, I was hoping to reach a wide audience, and this is just another step in that plan. We’re all raring to go.” “Daryl’s House” features live performances (in the Internet version, this included such names as Booker T and the MGs, Rob Thomas and Smokey Robinson) taking place inside Hall’s home. The broadcast version premiered on WGA America last year. “Other than the regular latenight shows,” Sternberg said, “there isn’t a weekly performance series currently on the air where the top bands, artists and musicians can perform their songs and reach audiences nationwide. We look forward to helping fill that void.”
