CW PLUS ADDS "THE BRIAN McKNIGHT SHOW"

(March 2, 2009) ´┐ŻLitton Entertainment announced today that the CW Plus has added THE BRIAN McKNIGHT SHOW to their weekend lineup for Fall 2009. The one-hour weekly entertainment show will feature live performances from the hottest Hollywood stars, musicians, athletes and comedians, and bring fresh, original content to weekend audiences.

"We are delighted to welcome THE BRIAN McKNIGHT SHOW to our line-up of CW affiliates," said Russ Myerson, Executive Vice President and General Manager for CW Plus. "Brian is an enormously talented and versatile performer who is extremely well connected in the entertainment world. His great energy and enthusiasm, coupled with the production mastery of Larry Klein, should make this weekly program a must-see."

Other stations and groups signed on for the series include Tribune's WPIX-TV in New York, Weigel's WCIU in Chicago, as well as prestigious groups such as LIN, Sinclair, CBS, Newport, Barrington, Local TV, McKinnon, and Hubbard.

McKnight, a multi-platinum award-winning singer, musician, producer and arranger, is known for his silky style, breezy charm and smooth vocals. A true renaissance man, McKnight's talents have been showcased in every medium: from his 20 million record sales to his Broadway acting debut in Chicago; from hosting his own radio and television shows to working as a special red-carpet correspondent for Extra. A devoted sports enthusiast, McKnight plays basketball and golf, and is known for his musical proficiency on no less than nine instruments. But wherever and whenever he appears, McKnight captures audiences with his authenticity, instant rapport and obvious ease in the spotlight.

Two-time Emmy Award-winning producer Larry Klein was announced as Showrunner for the series last week.
