Seventeen, WB pact on spec

Magazine to produce a series of TV specials

Seventeen magazine has inked a deal with the WB Television Network to produce a series of one-hour specials, with the first slated to air Sept. 8.

The specs, produced by Telepictures Prods., will feature a combination of the type of content that would traditionally be found in the teen magazine, along with profiles of and appearances by stars from the WB’s youth-oriented shows.

The first special, “Seventeen: The Faces of Fall,” will be hosted by WB series regulars Joshua Jackson (“Dawson’s Creek”) and Shannen Doherty (“Charmed,” which debuts in the fall) and will preview “what’s hot” for the season in entertainment, fashion, sports and music.

The special is executive produced by Alex Duda and Susie Arnett. Ed Horwitz is co-executive producer.

Meredith Berlin, Seventeen’s editor in chief, and executive editor Roberta Caploe are co-producing.

Seventeen has 2.4 million readers and is owned by Primedia Magazine Group, which also operates New York, Chicago, Modern Bride, Soap Opera Digest and Automobile magazines.
