Finally, Culture Click (26 x 30-minutes) is a news magazine show for the 13- to 16-year-old set, hosted by E! Entertainment’s Nzinga Blake.

Jeff Tahler, senior VP of acquisitions and development at FME, said: “These outstanding series offer compelling, family-friendly entertainment that is sure to engage viewers of all ages and cultures. Litton has an excellent track record of producing quality programming, and we look forward to working with it now and in the future.”
