Nbc new adventure dating show
Jerry has an audition with the new "Elaine" (played by Elena Wohl), a method actress interested in being Elaine in every way, including insisting being called Elaine and even going as far as dating Jerry (and breaking up with him in Part 2).
The real Elaine has a problem with Monk's coffee shop, as they appear to be only hiring buxom waitresses, so she tries to get hired; when the owner turns her down, she files a report with the Equal Employment Opportunity office. NBC executive Russell Dalrymple's obsession with Elaine begins to affect his work; she tries to let him down easy by saying she can't be in a relationship with a high-powered man and would prefer to be with someone selfless, such as a member of Greenpeace.
“This move will propel her to superstar status,” said Ira Berger, who supervises ad buying on broadcast and cable for The Richards Group, an independent Dallas ad agency.
“This move will broaden her reach beyond the Fox bubble.” And yet, Kelly’s current halo does not necessarily mean she can also triumph over splintered broadcast-TV audiences and tired formats.
NBCUniversal will spend millions of dollars each year for the next few in the hopes that Megyn Kelly can succeed in areas in which she’s never been tested: daytime talk and Sunday newsmagazines.
The Comcast-owned company said Tuesday it intended to launch a new daytime program as well as a Sunday newsmagazine to showcase the famous Fox News anchor, whose profile has risen steadily since she launched a primetime program after Bill O’Reilly’s on the well-watched 21st Century Fox cable-news outlet.
Based on the UK program of the same name, this NBC reality series takes place in a Chicago restaurant, with restauranteur Sandro Coppola serving as Maitre d’.
The action centers on different couples who have just met, as they go out on their first dates.
Comcast purchased a controlling interest in the company in 2011, and acquired General Electric's remaining stake in 2013.
Those are hurdles she and NBC will have to leap over in the months to come.
NBC said it intends to place Kelly in a new Monday-through-Friday daytime hour set to launch sometime over the coming year.
