LATE NIGHTS WITH ANDRE?
Former American editor-at-large for Vogue magazine, André Leon Talley (now listed as Contributing Editor in the April 2010 masthead) has inked a late-night talk show deal with production company Electus, according to Women’s Wear Daily.
Talley will serve as executive producer of the potential chat-fest, along with Electus. He said his goal is to create “a show that blends Dick Cavett’s approach to eloquence and sophistication with unparalleled access into my international fashion lifestyle. A forum where unique stories will be told and inspirations shared.”
Marc Beckman of DMA United brokered the deal between Talley and Electus. Beckman said the show was still in the early stages of development but would likely be geared towards a cable network. “We think a television platform is an ideal showcase for André’s personality to shine and bring together his amazing network of personal contacts, ranging from designers to musicians to politicians,” he noted.
Talley is no stranger to TV, he served as a judge for four cycles (from 2009 to 2011) of Tyra Banks’ reality competition America’s Next Top Model.
Talley also films shorts for a web series on Vogue.com called “Mondays With André,” is a fashion correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and recently joined Numéro Russia, the soon-to-be-launched Russian outpost of international fashion magazine Numéro, as editor-at-large.
