DESCRIPTION:
(from Pivot's press release, May 2014) Pivot's nightly topical news series, TakePart Live, hosted by Meghan McCain, Jacob Soboroff and Eddie Huang, is set to premiere its new season in primetime on May 12th. With a fresh take on the nightly news format, brand-new set design, and an eclectic guest list, the show airs at a new time 10pm ET/9 PM CT. The announcement was made today by Pivot's Belisa Balaban, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Craig Parks, Senior Vice President, Live Programming. TakePart Live is an interactive news show, where Gen Y audiences get informed and get involved in the world around them. Meghan, Jacob and Eddie offer very different perspectives to issues making headlines around the world, trending online, culled from social media and pop culture at large. What happens over the hour-long program is a freewheeling, intelligent conversation among personalities who may not agree on the issues but are willing to entertain an alternative point of view, unlike nearly all issue-oriented cable television. The new season, produced by Embassy Row (Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, AMC's Talking Bad and The Talking Dead), airs live Monday through Thursdays, with a special highlights show on Fridays.
