A new series from Harvey Levin of “TMZ” will have an eight-week test run, according to TVNewsCheck. The website reports that the Fox-owned stations will run the prospective syndicated game show “South of Wilshire,” from Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
The tryout is expected to begin in January, according to sources. The news had not yet been confirmed by the companies.
“The show is described as ‘an urban game show’ set in the predominantly African-American neighborhoods of Los Angeles south of Wilshire Boulevard. The show apparently takes advantage of TMZ’s famed ability to collect video footage from the places where celebrities congregate,” the story reports.
