Winston summoned for 'Duty'
EmptySusan Winston, a former executive producer on ABC's "Good Morning America," has been tapped to executive produce the upcoming syndicated show "Jury Duty."
The strip, from Vincent Dymon's Radar Entertainment and independent distributor Foster/Tailwind, is a court show in which celebrities act as jury members. The show is presided over by Bruce Cutler, who came to fame in the 1980s for defending John Gotti and is now serving as the defense attorney for Phil Spector in the music producer's murder trial.
"Duty" has been cleared in 70% of the country, including the top three markets of New York (WPIX), Los Angeles (KCAL) and Chicago (WCIU).
Trifecta Entertainment & Media handles national ad sales on the show, which launches in September. Dymon is looking for a cable network partner to air the show as well.
Winston's credits also include "CBS Morning News," Spike TV's "Wide World of Spike," TLC's "Untold Stories of the ER" and WE: Women's Entertainment's "Designer to the Stars: Kari Whitman."
