The CW Network, Tribune Studios and Irwin Entertainment have announced a partnership to launch “The Robert Irvine Show,” which The CW Network will add to their weekday afternoon lineup beginning September 2016. “The Robert Irvine Show” will air Monday through Friday, 3:00-4:00 p.m., on The CW Network stations nationwide.
Robert Irvine is best known for his restaurant resurrection show Restaurant: Impossible on The Food Network.
Tribune Studios, in affiliation with veteran television producer John Irwin (“Couples/Family Therapy,” “Red Nose Day,” “New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly”) and his eponymous Irwin Entertainment, and Robert Irvine Productions are bringing a new twist to first-run syndication with “The Robert Irvine Show,” a 60-minute daytime conflict resolution talker. Andrew Scher (“The Doctors”) will serve as Executive Producer.
Irvine, a versatile celebrity chef with over a decade of television under his belt, has a strong following as a fitness guru and is a tireless advocate of our nation’s veterans, active duty military and military families. The series will showcase him providing help to families with his signature “tough love” approach to therapeutic work.
“The Robert Irvine Show” will be a strong complement to the successful daytime programs currently airing on Tribune Broadcasting’s stations, and we are excited to partner with Irwin Entertainment on this project,” said Sean Compton, President Strategic Programming and Acquisitions, Tribune Media.
“Robert has an impeccable reputation as not only one of the most successful and talented chefs in the world, he is also considered a role model and we are looking to embrace the philosophy that has made him a success, and use it to help individuals and families reach their full potential,” added John Irwin.
“Helping people overcome their most trying obstacles has been an important part of my process since day one,” added Irvine. “I’m thrilled to be working with Tribune, the CW, and Irwin Entertainment in bringing this exciting new talk format to life.”
“We are very happy to join with Tribune Studios and Irwin Entertainment to bring viewers ‘The Robert Irvine Show,’ which will be a great fit for The CW’s afternoon block and for our stations across the country,” said Chris Brooks, Senior Vice President, Network Distribution, The CW.
