According to THR, The famed radio and television personality is planning to develop and produce reality, game and talk shows for cable and broadcast with Williams serving as the executive producer on all the projects. Williams formed the company with husband Kevin Hunter, who also serves as EP of her nationally syndicated show, The Wendy Williams Show.
Rounding out Williams’ team is former head of development for 44 Blue, Lisa Knapp, who will serve as senior vp development and Jill Ramsey, Wendy’s current vp of Wendy, Inc., who will also serve as VP of WWP. According to Williams, this is a project that has been in the works for a long time.
“This is a dream come true,” Williams said. “Kevin and I have been kicking around so many ideas and are excited to be able to now bring them to life with our own production shingle. As anyone who watches my show knows, I am a huge fan of all reality and game shows, and I know a thing or two about talk. Lisa has spent a career creating and producing the kind of television shows I love, and we are thrilled to have her guide our development efforts. We don’t plan on wasting much time, so stay tuned for some must-see programming ahead.”
Congratulations Wendy and keep up the good work. How you doin?
