New York, NY –November 01, 2016—After a successful three-week preview last summer, “Page Six TV” will return to FOX for a national debut on FOX Television stations in 17 markets, including New York and Los Angeles.
Twentieth Television, the syndication arm of 20th Century FOX Television, will handle national distribution and barter sales for “Page Six TV,” a daily TV show from the New York Post and Endemol Shine North America.
“Page Six TV” is a daily television show modeled after “Page Six,” the iconic New York Post gossip column and web site. True to the “Page Six” signature style, the show’s contributors and insiders deliver in-the-know gossip and news from entertainment, culture, the media, finance, real estate and politics.
The first new syndicated program to garner an official launch for Fall 2017, “Page Six TV” is set for key access time periods and double runs across the FOX Television Stations.
“With the success of ‘Page Six TV’ this past summer, we are looking forward to the launch of the show next fall to continue to deliver an entertaining and insightful look at the latest gossip and headlines to a broader audience,” said Jesse Angelo, publisher of the New York Post and Executive Producer of ‘Page Six TV.’ “As an extension of the legendary column, ‘Page Six TV’ is another step in the evolution of the New York Post into a multi-platform media company reaching more than 43 million unique visitors online each month with a vibrant social media presence.”
Frank Cicha, Senior Vice President of Programming for FOX Television Stations stated, “Waiting for someone else to provide first run, day/date programming for us is a mistake. Several companies pulled together to execute the ‘Page Six TV’ test, and we saw enough in the finished product to give it a go.”
“We’re thrilled ‘Page Six TV’ is headed to national syndication with our partners at the New York Post, FOX TV Stations and the team at Twentieth Television,” said Charlie Corwin and Cris Abrego, co-CEOs of Endemol Shine North America. “We are really proud of the preview that our team developed and produced over the summer and we’re now eager to share ‘Page Six TV’ with the rest of the country.”
“Page Six TV’s” successful summer preview was hosted by John Fugelsang (Sirius XM Radio/VH1) and the show’s contributing experts and insiders included Mario Cantone (“The View,” “Sex and the City”), Bevy Smith (Bravo’s “Fashion Queens”), Variety entertainment reporter Elizabeth Wagmeister and New York Post Page Six reporter Carlos Greer. Page Six Editor Emily Smith and Deputy Editor Ian Mohr provided updates and insight, as well as exclusive first-looks into the latest breaking stories from the newsroom.
Kay O’Connell (“Jimmy Kimmel Live!”) and Matt Strauss (“The View”) served as executive producers, alongside New York Post CEO and Publisher Jesse Angelo and Endemol Shine North America’s Rob Smith and Michael Weinberg.
“Page Six TV” leverages the dynamic social media presence of Page Six and the New York Post to drive audience engagement and competition within the show. Viewers will have the opportunity to weigh in on topics with their own opinions across social media prior to the daily broadcast.
