The New York Post's infamous gossip section is getting the TV treatment, giving the paper's slogan of "If you don't want it on Page Six, Don't Do It" a slightly bigger warning. Crain's New York reports that Fox Television Stations will begin testing Page Six TV, a daily show covering everything from entertainment to media to politics on July 18th.
The non-scripted show will air for three weeks, for a half-hour each weekday, and include a panel of experts and contributors, Variety is reporting. "With ‘Page Six TV,' we'll explore a new medium and grow our reach. It will be a true New York Post product — smart, funny, biting and entertaining, covering the people and topics that make this city, and the world, tick," said the Post's publisher Jesse Angelo.
The show will be shot and produced in New York City, so think of it as TMZ-style reporting for the East Coast set.
