MSNBC’s Scarborough, Brzezinski turn drama TV producers

Exclu: MSNBC morning show hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are looking to moonlight in primetime — as drama producers.

The “Morning Joe” anchors have signed on to serve as consulting producers on “Young Turks,” an hourlong ensemble drama in development at sister broadcast net NBC.

Prospect Park, the shingle run by Jeff Kwatinetz, Paul Frank and Rich Frank, is behind the show.

“Young Turks” revolves around the personal and professional lives of a group of New Yorkers in their 20s. The characters findthemselves in the high-powered worlds of finance, politics and media — which is where the expertise of Scarborough and Brzezinski comes in.

Newcomers Jonny Umansky and Zach Hyatt penned the pilot script, while John Romano (“In Plain Sight”) is onboard as exec producer and showrunner. The three Prospect Park principals also serve as exec producers.

Universal Media Studios is behind “Young Turks.”
