Gretchen Carlson to Host New Interview series with Blumhouse TV
ICM Partners is thrilled to see Gretchen Carlson return to her position in the interview chair for an upcoming television project that will be produced in partnership with Blumhouse TV. It has been over three years since Carlson’s departure from Fox News, where she previously hosted Fox & Friends and The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson, but in the time since, Carlson has been busy championing empowerment for victims of abuse and creating platforms for similarly difficult topics to be publicly discussed.
“Since filing my lawsuit three years ago, helping to tell the stories of brave women and give a voice to the voiceless has become my passion,” Carlson recently said in a statement following the announcement of her new television project . “I am thrilled to be partnering with Blumhouse as I continue to explore more untold stories and create a platform for necessary conversations.”
The upcoming series is part of an ongoing deal with Blumhouse TV, who produced the 2019 Showtime miniseries The Loudest Voice. The Golden Globe nominated, limited-run series told the story of Fox News founder and longtime chief Roger Ailes, which notoriously included Carlson’s time at the network and the sexual harassment lawsuit she filed against her former boss. Carlson’s lawsuit became one of the earliest stories to incite the #MeToo movement, and was also portrayed in the 2019 film Bombshell.
Carlson’s new show has been described as “an interview series that dares to ask the difficult questions.” Special guests will sit down with Carlson to discuss topics regarding sexual harassment, the #MeToo movement, and women’s rights.
“Gretchen is one of the most respected news anchors and a formidable advocate for women’s empowerment,” said Blumhouse TV co-presidents Jeremy Gold and Marci Wiseman in a recent statement. “We see a kindred spirit in Gretchen who is unafraid to shine a light where others may not dare to look and we’re happy that she has made Blumhouse a home.”
ICM Partners is proud to support Carlson and all of her valiant work.
