The Weinstein Co. is partnering with American Media Inc. to develop and produce a talkshow with gossip and entertainment site Radar Online.
The live daily program is described as a fresh take on the newsmagazine and celebrity format, bringing Radar Online’s pop culture, lifestyle and reality entertainment coverage to TV. It’s unclear whether the show will be pitched for cable, network or syndication.
“We’re so delighted to be partnering with American Media and their Radar Online brand in this exciting new venture,” Weinstein co-chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. “Our television department has made a huge mark in the reality programming sector, and we’re so happy to be taking the next step into the talkshow format. We aim to set ourselves apart from the others by offering viewers the widest range of stories out there and delivering them in the most entertaining way possible.”
David Pecker, AMI chairman, president and CEO, added, “Partnering with the incredible team at the Weinstein Co. underscores the trust and influence of Radar’s reporting and bringing it to life in an innovative, fresh new format for the newsmagazine genre.”
