PEOPLE and ABC News are joining forces for a new limited run series, PEOPLE’s List.
The show, which premieres June 11 on ABC, is an hour-long weekly program co-hosted by Jerry O’Connell and former MTV News correspondent Suchin Pak. The pair will discuss five newsworthy individuals you need to know that week – from celebrities to everyday people.
The show will include features familiar to PEOPLE readers, including Scoop, PeopleStyle, PeoplePets and the Jess Cagle Interview (the video series hosted by PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle).
“PEOPLE takes us inside the most famous and fascinating lives in the world. From mega-stars to real people facing incredible circumstances, PEOPLE has been a trusted friend for the biggest events in pop culture history,” said Morgan Hertzan, SVP ABC News, and Exec in Charge of ABC’s Lincoln Square Productions.
Added Cagle: “We are thrilled to team up with ABC News to present stories that continue to entertain, inspire and empower our audience.”
The show will also feature new segments such as Home 360, which looks inside the most glamorous celebrity homes, and Then and Now, which gives an update on the stars who have graced PEOPLE’s iconic covers.
“It’s one stop shopping for all things pop culture, celebrity and human interest,” executive producer Danielle Rossen said. “It’s what you’ll be talking about with your friends all weekend.”
The series, which will run during the summer, will also give viewers a sneak peek at buzzy stories coming in the week ahead.
“This series joins together two of the most trusted media brands in the world – ABC News and PEOPLE. Partnering on this series gives us the opportunity to present the People brand to audiences in exciting new ways,” said Rich Battista, EVP, Time Inc. and President, Entertainment & Sports Group and Video.
PEOPLE’s List premieres June 11 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
