Feb 27, 2006  •  Post A Comment

CBS has ordered a reality series pilot from radio host, author and personal finance coach Dave Ramsey.

In the series, with the working title “The Dave Ramsey Project,” Mr. Ramsey will help families analyze and understand their financial state with the hope that they then can get themselves out of debt.

Emmy-winning documentary producer R.J. Cutler will executive produce the series. In addition to his pilot deal at CBS, Mr. Ramsey has signed an agreement with CBS Paramount Domestic Television to develop a syndicated series.

Mr. Ramsey’s expertise stems from his own financial story. By age 26 he established a $4 million real estate portfolio, which he lost by age 30. Since rebuilding his financial life, he has written about personal money management and hosted a nationally syndicated radio show.
