STEVE HARVEY BRINGING "STEVE" TO LOS ANGELES, HIRES EXECUTIVE PRODUCER AND SETS PREMIERE DATE
Monday, April 24, 2017 - Steve Harvey's new daytime series STEVE is coming to Los Angeles. The nationally syndicated show will premiere on Tuesday, September 5th, airing on NBC Owned Television Stations along with leading station groups across the country, covering over 95% of the US TV households.
STEVE will be produced by IMG and Steve Harvey and will tape on a new set at the Universal lot. With his move to the West Coast, viewers can expect more celebrity interviews from Steve in addition to his famed comedic viewpoint on all things pop culture.
STEVE has named veteran daytime producer and executive, Shane Farley as Executive Producer. With nearly 25 years of experience producing some of the highest-profile daytime and primetime programming, Farley has created, managed, overseen and consulted original television content on top-rated programs including NBC's "The Voice" and VH1's "Big Morning Buzz."

Farley will be working alongside fellow Executive Producers Gerald Washington ("Steve Harvey," "Family Feud," "Celebrity Family Feud," "Little Big Shots"), and IMG's Mark Shapiro and Mike Antinoro.
"As I embark on this new adventure, I'm excited to explore everything Los Angeles has to offer for this new show," said Steve Harvey. "STEVE is going to be different than my current daytime show. The new location will allow me to welcome more celebrity guests and more importantly let me do what I enjoy doing best, being funny!'
