An anchor on ABC’s “Good Morning America” is setting up a new television production company. The New York Times reports that Robin Roberts’ new firm is called Rock’n Robin Productions.
The independent company will work on documentaries, lifestyle reality series and live special events for ABC, as well as other broadcast networks and digital networks.
The Times adds: “Although Ms. Roberts did not provide many specifics, she said her new projects include a news-driven documentary, a Thanksgiving-themed ABC special and two reality show pilots. A new Rock’n Robin website will feature behind-the-scenes footage from the various projects and a new blog called N’Courage, where Ms. Roberts — a high-profile cancer survivor — will recognize people battling extraordinary odds.”
Roberts, 53, has tapped ABC News executive vice president of programming and development John R. Green to run the company. Green will also remain at ABC News as executive producer of special programming.
