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.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”

Intrigued to see how Postscript turns out? Wish Thad would return as. J. T to Y&R for a another stint? Comment below.
