The new syndicated series 'The Nate Berkus Show' (working title) from Harpo Studios and Sony Pictures Television, starring interior designer Nate Berkus, will premiere this fall. The show will be launched in New York, in high definition (HD).
'The Nate Berkus Show' is a show for viewers who want to transform their lives, according to Valerie Schaer, executive vice president, creative development for Harpo Studios.
Nate Berkus, who has appeared regularly on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," is a decorator and design expert, a New York Times best-selling author and product developer with a complete line of branded products for the home. The daily, multi-topic show will present a broad range of subjects and guests based on lifestyle, entertainment and personal transformation.
"I'm incredibly excited about the opportunity to lead the launch of 'The Nate Berkus Show'," said the show's executive producer Zev Shalev. "Viewers trust Nate to bring positive change to their lives, and they feel a deep connection to him through everything he has shared in his appearances on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' over the years. I can't wait to work with Nate and the teams at Harpo and Sony to share his next chapter," said Shalev.
"The Nate Berkus Show" is the second series partnership between Harpo Studios and Sony Pictures Television. Their first, "The Dr. Oz Show," launched in September 2009 as the highest-rated first-run syndication premiere in the last seven years. SPT will handle worldwide distribution efforts for the show and co-produces the series with Harpo Studios.
