Hustle. Harder. Business congrats are in order for media maven Wendy Williams. Deadline has confirmed that the 48-year-old daytime talk show host and her husband-manager, Kevin Hunter, have formed Wendy Williams Prods. Exactly what is Wendy Williams Production? It’s a production company that will focus on development and production of reality, game and talk shows for the cable and broadcast markets.
Lionsgate-owned Debmar-Mercury, producer-distributor of Williams’ nationally syndicated The Wendy Williams Show, will be a partner in the new company and Wendy will serve as executive producer of the projects developed through her company and may also have an on-camera role in some. Of her new venture, Wendy stated:
“This is a dream come true. As anyone who watches my show knows, I am a huge fan of all reality and game shows, and know a thing or two about talk.”
No further details about her new venture have been released.
