Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is throwing his hat into the talk show arena. The New York Times is reporting that Sean Spicer's Common Ground will feature him in informal settings. According to the pitch sheet, the show's pilot states Spicer, who worked as the Communications Director for the White House under President Donald Trump for 7 months, will host,
Some of the most interesting and thoughtful public figures for a drink and some lite conversation at a local pub or cafe.

The pilot will be shot in July. It's being backed by syndication titan Debmar-Mercury, which has The Wendy Williams Show and Family Feud under its belt. They will team up with Pilgrim Media Group (American Chopper) to co-produce. Currently, the project doesn't have a network to call home.
Spicer remarked about the venture,
