Following a successful three-week preview last summer, Endemol Shine North America and the New York Post‘s daily television program Page Six TV is returning to Fox for a national debut on Fox Television stations in 17 markets, including New York and LA.
Page Six TV is modeled after “Page Six,” the iconic New York Post gossip column and website. It will feature contributors and insiders who deliver “in-the-know” gossip and news from entertainment, culture, the media, finance, real estate and politics. According to Endemol Shine North America, it’s the first new syndicated program to achieve an official launch for Fall 2017. It’s set for key access time periods and double runs across Fox TV stations.
Twentieth Century Fox Television’s syndication arm, Twentieth Television, will handle national distinction and barter sales for the series.
“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 each month with a virbant social media presence,” said Jesse Angelo, CEO and publisher of the New York Post, and executive producer of Page Six TV in a statement.
The series’ summer preview was hosted by John Fugelsang (Sirius XM Radio/VH1) with constituting experts and insiders including 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.
Page Six TV also encourages viewer participation, leveraging the social presence of “Page Six” and the New York Post to drive audience engagement and competition within the show by allowing viewers to weigh in on topics with their own opinions prior to the daily broadcast.
