NEW YORK — FOX News Channel (FNC) has acquired a 10-episode series order of OBJECTified, hosted by Harvey Levin of TMZ.
The series order follows last November’s pilot special OBJECTified: Donald Trump, featuring then-presidential candidate Donald Trump on Fox News. According to Nielsen Media Research, OBJECTified averaged over 4 million total viewers and nearly one million in the 25-54 demographic, beating CNN and MSNBC combined for the hour. Additionally, the program delivered a yearly Friday night high for the network.
The series plans to feature intimate interviews with high profile newsmakers and celebrities, telling their life stories through the objects they’ve chose to keep over the years. The objects become jumping off points in understanding how the experiences of the person shaped them into who they are today.
Debuting this fall 2017 in primetime on Sundays, OBJECTified will present close-up interviews with high profile newsmakers and celebrities, aiming to tell the stories of their lives through their own personal items.
Sharri Berg, Senior Vice President of News Operations for FOX News and COO of FOX Television Stations. said, “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.”
Levin added, “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.”
The OBJECTified 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.
