By Christopher Rocchio, 04/21/2008
NBC announced it has inked a deal with Howie Mandel to develop Howie Do It, a new unscripted comedy series that the Deal or No Deal host will both star in and produce.
"I can't tell you how excited I am to be in business with NBC once again," said Mandel. "Working with them on Deal or No Deal continues to be a phenomenal experience."
The tentatively-titled unscripted series will be produced by Mandel's Alevy Production in association with 3 Arts. Mandel, Scott Hallock, Kevin Healey, Morgan Elliot and Michael Rotenberg will serve as executive producers.
"America loves Howie and we're so lucky to have another great show that will showcase his unique signature humor," said NBC Entertainment executive Craig Plestis.
Prior to hosting the show, the comedian created and executive produced the Fox cartoon Bobby's World and also hosted his own syndicated talk show The Howie Mandel Show. In addition, Mandel had a six-year stint as Dr. Wayne Fiscus on NBC's St. Elsewhere and also starred in Hidden Howie, an unscripted comedy series that aired on Bravo.
