After five years, Steve Harvey is headed out west to start a new run into daytime TV. It was announced yesterday that Harvey will no longer produce his current Steve Harvey Show in Chicago. The new show will now be based out of Los Angeles, CA.
The Steve Harvey show will be coming to an end after five seasons. However, Harvey will remain a daytime fixture with a new talker, set to launch in September. He will produce the new show with IMG. It will be distributed by NBCUniversal Domestic Television, which also distributed Steve Harvey. The NBC stations, which currently carry Steve Harvey, also will be the core station group for the new show next fall. NBCU is currently shopping it to other stations with the expectations that the new show will be taken on by the majority of stations that carry Steve Harvey. The terms of the deals are unclear but a shows of this caliber usually seek and get a two-year initial pickup…..Because of the new location, the new show is expected to be more celebrity driven while keeping Harvey’s trademark comedy.
