Biz-savvy yakker is part of the exclusive reality deal with Draper, along with a competition show

Reality shingle 44 Blue Productions has inked an exclusive deal with Jesse Draper to bring Draper’s web series “The Valley Girl Show” to TV, and develop a biz competish show titled “What Women (Really) Want.”

Draper, who logged years on Nickelodeon’s “The Naked Brothers Band,” launched “The Valley Girl Show” in 2008, a biz-savvy talkshow that Draper describes as “like ‘Ellen,’ but with guests you’d only see on Charlie Rose or MSNBC.” Yakker features Draper in valley girl persona conversing with CEOs, entrepreneurs and celebs about their businesses.

Honchos who have appeared on “The Valley Girl Show” include Ted Turner, Mark Cuban, Sandra Day O’Connor, Sheryl Sandberg, MC Hammer and former Google topper Eric Schmidt.

Jesse’s impressive business savvy and fresh sense of humor make the world of Silicon Valley approachable,” said Rasha Drachkovitch, prez of 44 Blue. “Her tremendous energy and novel approach to the ‘business interview’ have made ‘The Valley Girl Show’ must-see viewing, and we’re certain that anyone who’s tuned in online to see her high-fiving Ted Turner will be excited to see what she does on TV.”

Stephanie Drachkovitch, exec veep and co-owner of the shingle, adds: “Not only has Jesse made tech and entrepreneurism interesting in a totally different way for a younger audience, but she’s also created opportunities to support startups and women in business. A show like ‘What Women (Really) Want’ identifies creative, forward-thinking products and services designed for women who make most of the buying decisions in American households. It’s a perfect fit for her.”

44 Blue and Draper are both repped by WME. Draper is managed by Kevin Gould of KRG Entertainment.
