Fresh on the heels of president Trump skewering Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel at a South Carolina rally Monday night, comes news that former White House press secretary Sean Spicer is hatching plans to join the ranks of talk show hosts himself.
The show, which would have one guest per episode, is being pitched with the name “Sean Spicer’s Common Ground.” Spicer’s guests would include “some of the most interesting and thoughtful public figures,” according to a pitch sheet obtained by the New York Times. The pitch also touts the projected show’s “relaxed atmosphere.”
Debmar-Mercury, the syndicator of such programs as “The Wendy Williams Show,” “Family Feud” and “Celebrity Name Game” would be producing the show alongside Pilgrim Media Group, the production studio behind “Zombie House Flippers,” “Ghost Hunters” and “Fast N’ Loud,” among other titles.
The pilot of the show is set to be filmed in July.
Spicer’s projected talk show follows several other multi-media ventures. In addition to “The Briefing: Politics, The Press, and The President,” a book set to be released on July 24, he is co-hosting the podcast “Everything’s Going to Be All Right” with Katie Pavlich, a Fox News contributor and editor of the conservative website Townhall. He also unveiled a wax likeness of Melania Trump at New York’s outpost of Madame Tussauds in April.
