Spotlight - NBC's loss is the Weinstein Production company gain. Weinstein Television said it would work to develop a daytime talk show featuring Tamron Hall, who worked for many years as an anchor at MSNBC and on NBC’s “Today” show. Hall will co-create the program with Weinstein and serve as host and executive producer of the series. Weinstein said Barry Wallach, a former president of domestic TV distribution for NBC, would consult. Weinstein and Hall will also collaborate to develop other non-scripted programming under the terms of their pact.
The talk show is currently untitled, and is expected to focus on current events, human-interest stories and interviews with celebrities and newsmakers. The daily series is slated to be shot in front of a live studio audience. Weinstein said the program “will fill the current void in daytime for viewers looking for a blend of heart, humor and information.”
