“I’m excited to continue my longstanding relationship with E! and the ‘Live from the Red Carpet,’ franchise,” said Seacrest. “NBCUniversal – Adam, along with Steve, Bonnie, Frances and too many other executives to name them all – have been very supportive of me and my various creative endeavors this past decade, and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
Seacrest launched Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP) in 2006, which has since become an Emmy-winning entertainment production powerhouse creating unscripted, scripted and digital programming. RSP produces the E! hit cable series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and its spin-offs, as well as “Live from the Red Carpet,” Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset,” and CMT’s “I Love Kellie Pickler.” Additionally, RSP produces “Shades of Blue,” a NBC drama series starring Jennifer Lopez.
On radio, Seacrest is host of “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” his number one nationally syndicated LA morning drive-time show for iHeartMedia’s 102.7 KIIS-FM, as well as a nationally-syndicated Top 40 radio show.
“Ryan has been a valued partner and a beloved face on ‘Live from the Red Carpet’ for over a decade and we look forward to continuing our collaboration for the hit franchise,” said Adam Stotsky, president of E! “In addition, Ryan has been instrumental as a producing partner in helping to solidify E!’s position as a leader in unscripted programming for millennial women. It’s exciting that together we will be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ later this year.”
“Live from the Red Carpet” continues to be a major draw for E! in both linear ratings and online. In the 2017 awards season, E! delivered 165 million total engagements across platforms, up 23% versus 2016.
E!’s “Live From the Red Carpet” is produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Wilshire Studios. Seacrest, Gary Snegaroff, Eddie Delbridge, Shaun Smith and Gerry Johnston are executive producers.
