Steve Harvey Expands TV Empire


Steve Harvey is expanding his empire on the television and film side of things.

Harvey recently inked a production deal with Endemol Shine North America. Endemol Shine is the studio that produces Harvey’s daytime talk show, The Steve Harvey Show. The media mogul and his East 112th Street Productions company will develop unscripted, scripted and digital programming. This is the first studio for East 112th Street Prods.

“Cris, Charlie and the team at Endemol Shine offer us the opportunity to expand our vision for East 112th Street globally, and we’re already exploring a number of potential projects together that I can’t wait to see get off the ground.”

Steve Harvey exec producer Gerald Washington will serve as president and Donna-Marie Reid as director of development. The company will be based at Endemol Shine North America’s Los Angeles office.

The Steve Harvey Morning Show is a top-rated nationally syndicated morning radio show that attracts about 7 million listeners each week.
