Who better than daytime television's reigning king of TV trash to host a show on Investigation Discovery entitled Tabloid? The cabler has announced Jerry Springer will host their new weekly series, exploring salacious stories ripped straight from the pages of supermarket rags.
“There really was no other choice for this series other than the king of daytime talk himself, Jerry Springer, to complement ID’s incredible stories of revenge, betrayal and real-life drama,” said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager, Investigation Discovery. “A credit to his overwhelming appeal to our largely female audience, Jerry’s syndicated series is in its 22nd season and still going strong. We are thrilled to welcome him to the ID family, and excited to have him guide our viewers through the twisted turns behind the eye-catching headlines in Tabloid.”
The hour-long, 10-episode series is being produced by Radley Studios and Espiritus Productions. Look for Tabloid to premiere on ID in 2014.
