Regis Philbin Wants Prime Time Show!

Monday, November 28, 2011

REGIS Philbin has his sights set on prime time.

The TV legend — who hosted the first season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent — has formed RAF Productions with former Live With Regis and Kathie Lee director Barry Glazer, City Island executive producer Edward Walson and Writers Guild Awards exec producer Cort Cassidy.

“We’re contemplating a show that is sort of a talent show, but it involves the whole family,” Philbin told New York Post gossip column Page Six, adding, “a family competition, which is something new in our business. It’s going to be on prime time when it happens.

“[An] entertainment type of show would appeal to me. Almost a variety show. In our business you don’t want to say variety because it’s frowned upon now, but something with people who are performing.”
