Universal Content Productions’ (UCP) unscripted wing Wilshire Studios is shifting focus from broad-spectrum unscripted programming and live events to premium docuseries, Realscreen has learned.
Wilshire will continue to produce all current unscripted projects until final delivery. These include E! True Hollywood Story for E!, DNA of Murder with Paul Holes for Oxygen, Straight Up Steve Austin for USA and A Lie To Die For for Oxygen.
Live events productions previously handled by Wilshire, including E! Live From the Red Carpet and E! People’s Choice Awards, will be produced by E!’s live events team going forward.
