Reality TV: THR's 50 Most Powerful List
Klarman has had a bang-up year: His reality spinoff of Fox’s Glee, The Glee Project, became Oxygen’s most-watched freshman season finale in August. The competition series, which will return in June, also delivered water-cooler buzz and earned many awards for its digital campaigns, including June’s NATPE Innovator Award.
Now Klarman, 45, is poised to launch a slew of new titles, including the dance series All the Right Moves and the Star Search-like The Next Big Thing. The New York-based Klarman also touts Oxygen’s success in VOD and social-media networking but is realistic about its value, saying with a laugh, “We have to figure out a way to monetize all of it.”
