NBCUniversal has lined up a new show in the “Access Hollywood” franchise, the half-hour news program “All Access,” to debut next month.
Hosted by “Access Hollywood” hosts Mario Lopez, Kit Hoover, Scott Evans and correspondent Sibley Scoles, “All Access” will take an in-depth look into the national headlines to uncover the extraordinary real-life drama occurring in everyday places and exploring compelling true crime and uplifting human interest stories.
The show will air on six NBC-owned stations: New York (WNBC), Los Angeles (KNBC), Philadelphia (WCAU), San Francisco Bay Area (KNTV), Miami (WTVJ) and Hartford (WVIT).
“With the rapidly evolving entertainment news cycle, we strive to bring our viewers the most up-to-date headlines and going live will achieve that,” Maureen FitzPatrick, senior executive producer of all three shows, said in a statement. “We will be able to advance the stories in real time as news breaks.”
The 24th season of “Access Hollywood” is set to premiere on Sept. 9, with Lopez making his debut as co-host. It will be followed by “All Access” on the six NBC-owned stations. Also premiering his fall is the 10th season of the syndicated lifestyle show “Access Live,” which is being rebranded as “Access Daily.”
“Access Hollywood” and “All Access” are executive produced by FitzPatrick, Stewart Bailey and Mike Marson. Cara Petry and Sharon Spaeth are supervising producers, with Claudia Eaton as senior producer. Julie Cooper is executive producer for “Access Daily,” and Alyson DiFranco and Jennifer Dixon are supervising producers. FitzPatrick serves as senior executive producer, and Eaton is senior producer.
All three shows tape at Terrace Studios and are distributed by NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution.
