New York Post To Launch "Page Six TV" Preview On FOX Television Stations In Partnership With Endemol Shine North America
May 11, 2016 - The New York Post, in partnership with Endemol Shine North America and FOX Television Stations, announced today the launch of "PAGE SIX TV," a daily television show modeled after “Page Six,” the iconic gossip column and web site. True to the “Page Six” signature style, the program will feature a diverse panel of experts and insiders, delivering in-the-know gossip and news from entertainment, culture, the media, finance, real estate and politics. The half-hour program will premiere on Monday, July 18th for a three-week preview on select FOX Television Stations in top markets, including New York and Los Angeles. The production will be shot and produced in New York City.
“‘Page Six’ has been driving the conversation for decades, and in New York it's everyone's first read, whether in the paper or online" said Jesse Angelo, publisher of the New York Post. "With ‘Page Six TV,’ we'll explore a new medium and grow our reach. It will be a true New York Post product - smart, funny, biting and entertaining, covering the people and topics that make this city, and the world, tick."
“PAGE SIX TV” will feature panelist/contributors who will compete each evening to headline "The Page" by breaking exclusive news, advancing a story, and providing irreverent and opinionated insight. The program will leverage the dynamic social media presence of “Page Six” and the Post to drive audience engagement and competition within the show. Viewers will have the opportunity each morning to weigh in on topics with their own opinions across social media prior to the daily broadcast.
Frank Cicha, Senior Vice President of Programming, FOX Television Stations added, “We’re constantly looking for fresh, day and date strip programming. ‘Page 6’ has always had its own point of view, and we expect that to translate very well to the TV show.”
Added Charlie Corwin and Cris Abrego, co-CEOs of Endemol Shine North America, “We’ve been talking with Jesse and the team at the NY Post for some time now about bringing ‘Page Six’s’ iconic brand and expertise to TV and we’re thrilled that the FOX Television Stations are set to offer a preview this summer of what’s to come. "
"PAGE SIX TV" will air Monday through Friday on select FOX Television Stations. Producers are in the final stages of casting core cast members, while the existing “Page Six” editorial team will appear in select episodes and segments.
