“Sean Spicer, arguably the world’s most famous White House press secretary, is developing a talk show with the tentative title of ‘Sean Spicer’s Common Ground,’ in which the former spokesman for President Trump interviews notable people in an informal setting,” The New York Times reports.
The report quotes a pitch sheet for the show’s pilot that says Spicer hosts “some of the most interesting and thoughtful public figures for a drink and some lite conversation at a local pub or cafe.”
“The relaxed atmosphere is an ideal setting for Sean to get to know his guests as they discuss everything from the media to marriage,” the pitch sheet adds. “They might even tangle over the merits of making your bed or the value of a great point guard.”
The Times adds: “No network is attached to the project, but the pilot episode, to be filmed in July, is backed by heavy hitters in the realm of unscripted television. Debmar-Mercury, the syndicator of daytime series including ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ and ‘Family Feud,’ is co-producing with Pilgrim Media Group, which has developed basic-cable staples like ‘American Chopper.’”
