Twentieth Television is ceasing production on its personal makeover syndicated strip “Ambush Makeover,” but will attempt to sell produced episodes of the show as library product. First-run episodes of the strip will continue to run in syndication until Sept. 12.

In a statement, the company said the nearly 300 completed episodes of the strip “can continue to serve a valuable purpose in today’s competitive market.”

“We are actively exploring opportunities for the program as an effective library product in both the broadcast and cable arenas,” the statement added.

Chris Rantamaki executive produced “Makeover” for Banyan productions. Gigi Berry, Nancy Brensson, Mary Alice Haney, Anthony Perinelli, William Whatley and Nicole Williams were hosts.
