Sean Spicer to Develop Daytime Talk Show

Proposed Series is From Debmar-Mercury and the Pilgrim Media Group

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, whose six-month stint in the job working for President Trump ended last summer, is developing a syndicated daytime talk show from distributor Debmar-Mercury and Pilgrim Media Group. Tentatively titled “Sean Spicer’s Common Ground,” the potential daily talker will feature Spicer hosting “some of the most interesting and thoughtful public figures for a drink and some lite conversation at a local pub or cafe.”

According to the pitch…“The relaxed atmosphere is an ideal setting for Sean to get to know his guests as they discuss everything from the media to marriage. They might even tangle over the merits of making your bed or the value of a great point guard.”

“In this current environment, I think it’s important to have a platform where we can have civil, respectful, and informative discussions on the issues of the day,” said Spicer in a statement.

  1. Who would watch this idiot do a show? Let me guess Angela Dungey at ABC is behind this? Executives wonder why viewers are not watching TV. It’s because of garbage like this

  2. I have no interest in watching the show not really into talk shows other than Ellen once in a blue moon if there is a guest I like.
