Tony DiSanto, MTV’s executive vice president of series development and programming, spoke to TelevisionWeek’s Jon Lafayette about the upcoming Jamie Foxx-produced reality competition series “From Gs to Gents.”
Mr. DiSanto said the series demonstrates MTV’s movement toward diversity of genres and themes, following in “Made’s” transformative series footsteps. “This idea really appealed to us,” he said. “[It] is really empowering, and it’s all about people wanting to change themselves.”
“For me, ‘Gs to Gents’ couldn’t be anywhere else,” Mr. DiSanto added. “It purely is MTV.”
Would the network, popular with viewers for its reality competition series, consider a “From Gs to Gents” celebrity edition?
“I think it’s a brilliant idea,” Mr. DiSanto said. “You heard it here first.”
