Wannabe Moguls

One of the most enduring couples in Hollywoodland, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, have signed a production deal with cabler TLC.

Kelly and Mark are more than pretty TV presenters. They are business people, too!

The duo will develop ‘unscripted’ (ahem, reality) shows for the feel-good network through their production company, Milojo Productions.

The TLC deal has a ‘reunion’ element of sorts for the couple. TLC President, Angela Shapiro-Mathes, used to be their boss at ABC. Shapiro-Mathes was President of ABC Daytime when Kelly and Mark were on the ABC soap All My Children.

├óΓé¼┼ôWe are thrilled to be partnering with TLC,├óΓé¼┬¥ said Ripa and Consuelos in the press release announcing the deal. ├óΓé¼┼ôThe first thing you want in a relationship is for it to feel right, and this definitely feels right. And it├óΓé¼Γäós great to be working with Angela Shapiro-Mathes again — she has been so instrumental in our careers.├óΓé¼┬¥

What kind of shows do you think they’re gonna develop???

Probably some boring parenting crap!
