Fox News has acquired a ten-episode series order of “OBJECTified,” hosted by TMZ founder Harvey Levin, which will debut in the Fall of 2017.
“What I love about the show is that it’s a different way of telling a life story, and it’s relatable to anyone who watches. Everyone keeps stuff that means something to them, and when you start probing what the objects mean to you, what was going on in your life at the time, they can unlock the story of who you are today,” Levin said in a statement.
The series will feature intimate interviews with high profile newsmakers and celebrities, telling their life stories through the objects they’ve chosen to keep over the years.
Last November, Fox News aired a special titled “OBJECTified,” hosted by Levin, which averaged over 4 million in total viewers, beating cable news rivals CNN and MSNBC combined in the 10 p.m. timeslot. The behind-the-scenes look at Donald Trump was the most-watched program of the year for Fox News on a Friday night and obviously impressed network executives enough to order another 10 episodes.
“The ‘OBJECTified’ special presented on FNC last fall exceeded our expectations, so we’re thrilled to continue working with Harvey Levin and his talented team of producers on this new series,” Senior Vice President of News Operations for FOX News and COO of FOX Television Stations Sharri Berg said in a statement.
The series will be produced by Harvey Levin Productions, Inc. in association with Telepictures and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. Harvey Levin and Ryan Regan will serve as the program’s executive producers alongside John Finley, FNC’s Vice President of Development.
