Steve Harvey wants you to know that he doesn’t plan to slow down. The entertainment mogul has just revealed in partnership with Screen Gems that he is taking his book Think Like A Man to TV. Deadline first broke the news yesterday.
Fox is developing Think Like A Man, a single-camera comedy executive produced by comedian Steve Harvey, on whose best-selling advice book the movies were based, and by the films’ producer Will Packer. Keith Merryman and David A. Newman, who wrote the 2012 movie and the 2014 sequel Think Like A Man Too, will pen the TV adaptation and will executive produce. Tim Story, who directed both movies, will helm the potential pilot and also executive produce, along with Gerald Washington, president of Harvey’s East 112th Street Productions. Will Packer Prods.’ Korin D. Huggins co-executive produces.
While the newly announced project begins to move forward, Harvey has recently hinted on even more TV projects he’s looking to be apart of. In a released clip, Steve went on to discuss his current run on several different networks and addressed those who thinks it’s too much exposure.
What I’m doing, don’t make no sense. I’m on three different networks. I’m on in the daytime with a talk show, I’m on in the daytime with a game show, night time with a game show, and night time with another prime time show … and about to do another show with Mark Burnett (of Survivor) called ‘Dream Funding’….. When I’m in Africa, Dubai, Australia, or Maldives I see the Nike swoosh, everywhere I go…and they’re still buying them shoes.
Looks that Harvey is setting up for an even stronger campaign when 2016 kicks off.
