Former Vice President Mike Pence is coming to TV, or at least streaming. Pence will narrate a four-part limited series for Fox News Media’s streaming service Fox Nation.
The series, Age of Rush, will look at the career of radio host Rush Limbaugh, who died last month at age 70. The series will include interviews with Limbaugh’s producer James Golden, aka “Bo Snerdley,” as well as Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Brian Kilmeade, Mark Steyn and Larry Elder, and Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer, MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz and Fox contributor Newt Gingrich. The series will chronicle Limbaugh’s career, his rise in influence within the Republican party and his lung cancer diagnosis.
Age of Rush is set to debut on Fox Nation on March 10.
Pence, a former talk radio host himself, has maintained a low profile since leaving office in January. He did not speak at the CPAC conference in Florida, an event where his running mate former President Donald Trump was the main draw.
Pence isn’t joining Fox News like those other officials, but his decision to return to the public eye as part of the Limbaugh series is nonetheless notable, given his low profile of late.
Previous presidents and politicians have begun to explore the world of streaming in recent years. Barack and Michelle Obama have a deal with Netflix, while Bill Clinton is producing a presidential docuseries for History. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, is also exploring the TV and streaming waters.
