Dr. Drew Pinsky forms production company
Will produce unscripted shows featuring doctor, other talent
One of the most prominent faces in reality TV, Dr. Drew Pinsky, is forming his own production company.
Dr. Drew Productions will produce unscripted shows featuring the celebrity doctor and other talent. Pinsky will partner with his longtime manager Howard Lapides on the venture.
The first project is a pilot, "Estranged With Dr. Drew," where couples decide if they want to reunite or separate. The pilot is being shopped with Picture This TV.
Dr. Drew is the star of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab" franchise and hosts MTV's "Sex ... With Mom and Dad." He's one of the few reality TV talents to attempt to make the leap into producing, a trail blazed by fellow radio veteran Ryan Seacrest.
