Scripps Produces 2 New Shows
Scripps is producing two programs that will debut Sept. 17 in seven of the company's 13 TV markets. One is a game show, "Let's Ask America" and the other a news magazine "The List" that replaces "Wheel of Fortune" and "Jeopardy!" in access and early fringe. By producing it's own content, Scripps cuts back on syndie costs. Partnered with Cox and Raycom, it is putting together the daily show "Right This Minute." The series will be made available outside of the Scripps markets through Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. All are scheduled for a fall 2013 national launch.
