Suze Orman to Exit CNBC for ‘Money Wars’ Series with Telepictures

Personal finance expert Suze Orman is poised to leave CNBC after 14 years to develop a new series, “Suze Orman’s Money Wars,” with Warner Bros.’ Telepictures Prods. that is designed to air weekdays.

It’s not clear yet if the project will be distribbed via first-run syndication or shopped to cable outlets. The series is in the very early stages of development, meaning that it’s too soon to target a fall 2015 debut in syndication should Telepictures go that route.

The “Money Wars” concept has Orman helping families, friends and couples tackle the financial and personal issues that are wrapped up in disputes over money.

There’s no word yet on a producer, but Orman’s longtime partner Kathy Travis will undoubtedly be involved.

CNBC’s “The Suze Orman Show” will wrap its long run on Saturday nights on March 28. The series helped establish Orman as one of the nation’s most-recognized financial experts.

CNBC prexy Mark Hoffman confirmed Orman’s exit in a memo sent to staffers Tuesday morning.

Here’s the memo:

Suze Orman is one of the leading voices in personal finance. For 14 years and 621 episodes to date, Suze has been a member of the CNBC family as a preeminent advocate for financial independence teaching viewers the importance of personal empowerment when it comes to money. Her motto “People first, then money, then things” resonates not only through our hallways but through the universe. Shortly, Suze will be making a big announcement about a new show that will take her from Saturday nights on CNBC to 5 days a week across America. The last new episode of The Suze Orman Show will air March 28. I want to personally thank Suze for her friendship and for her incredible contributions to CNBC.

Please join me in wishing Suze the very best in the future.

Mark
