Yeah, we thought Regis Philbin was retiring from show business too. Guess not!
But now, instead of chatting with Kelly Ripa, he's going to produce a family talent show. And no, it won't be during daytime television.
We’re contemplating a show that is sort of a talent show, but it involves the whole family, a family competition, which is something new in our business. It’s going to be on prime time when it happens.
Well, unseen unless you count Nickelodeon… but we're sure Rege's show will be WAY fancier!
