U.S. cable net E! has commissioned eight episode half-hour series Party On, which promises to head to exclusive resorts and gorgeous beaches around the world to soak up the local party scene.
Hosted by actor Jacqueline M. Wood, each episode will focus on one glamorous location, in which Wood will spend 48 hours “checking out the incredible vistas, tasting the delectable cocktails and cuisine, and trying out the often extreme activities that make each destination one-of-a-kind.”
The weekly series is made by Monkey Kingdom, part of NBCUniversal Television Production, and will be executive produced by David Granger, Will Macdonald and Daniel Marlowe. It promises to feature celebrities, jetsetters and “local legends,” and will debut on E! later this year.
“Party On is a bold, fun VIP tour of the most sparkling party destinations on the planet,” said Jeff Olde, E!’s exec VP of programming and development. “We are excited to take viewers around the globe and behind the velvet ropes for fun in the sun at only the hottest, most elite vacation locales.”
Monkey Kingdom MD Granger added: “We love the ambition that everyone at E! has for the show and are thrilled to be working with them. Jacqui is a brilliant host and we all see a wonderful opportunity to produce something very new and different given the high end glamour and sun soaked mischief that Europe has to offer.”
