The Talk’s Sheryl Underwood To Host Holiday Gift-Wrapping Competition, ‘Wrap Battle’

Photo: HutchinsPhoto.com

Now here’s a clever twist on a game show-reality-competition series from ace executive producer. Michael Levitt with a very familiar host to daytime TV audiences.

According to Deadline, production has begun on Freeform’s holiday gift-wrapping competition called Wrap Battle.  In the premise, The Talk’s and recent Daytime Emmy Awards co-host, Sheryl Underwood will be moonlighting, of sorts, hosting the series.  The gift-wrapping judges will be Carson Kressley and Soolip founder Wanda Wen.

The six-episode series will follow the journey of nine contestants as they battle to become the ultimate wrapper and take home a $50,000 grand prize. The show will be slated for a winter premiere.

In addition to the above mentioned talent, look for additional celebrity guest judges to take part in the series that is said to include: Broadway producer Candy Spelling, Sandra Lee, Sherry Cola (Good Trouble), Diggy Simmons (grown-ish), Lala Kent (Vanderpump Rules) and designer Sabrina Soto.

Executive Producers on the project include: Michael Levitt (Freeform’s Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Halloween Bash, Skin Wars, My Life on the D-List), Jill Goularte and Colleen Sands, under the Michael Levitt Productions umbrella.

So, what do you think of the gift-wrapping show concept? Sheryl as the host? Comment below.

When Elvis arrived in Hell, I put him in a room with 666 different TVs, all playing horrible TV shows at the same time. And no guns. It was the worst torment imaginable for him. And then the local HellMart was out of peanut butter & bananas, so the King couldn’t even make any sandwiches.

And for those who are shocked, yes Elvis is in Hell. Apparently my Former Employer hated his movies more than He liked his gospel records.

I think they should have named the show, “Wrap It Up”.

This likely will be lousy. What will make it even worse. I easily could see CBS pushing the thing by having her make a (totally irrelevant and unnecessary) appearance on Y&R where she chats with someone like Nikki about gift wrapping. Ugh.

Or back to B&B.

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.
