Fox News Orders Harvey Levin's 'OBJECTified' to Series
Following Harvey Levin's November tour of President Donald Trump's home in his hourlong Fox News' OBJECTified, the cable network has decided to turn the special into a series. Fox News has handed out a 10-episode order, expected to debut in fall 2017.
In the show, TMZ's Levin will offers tours of the homes of celebrities and prominent newsmakers who will tell their life stories through the objects they've kept over the years. The objects become jumping-off points to understand how the experiences of the people shaped them into who they are today.
"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," said Levin. "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 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," added Sharri Berg, senior vp news operations for Fox News and COO of Fox Television Stations.
OBJECTfified: Donald Trump, which was filmed in September 2015 before Trump had become president-elect and later picked up to air by Fox News, drew north of 4 million total viewers for the cable network. It delivered a yearly Friday night high for the channel.
The series will be produced by Harvey Levin Productions in association with Telepictures. Levin and Ryan Regan will executive produce alongside Fox News' vp development, John Finley. The series will be distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
