SCPA Discusses New Lachey TV Show

Written by jkiesewetter

In case you didn’t see Jessica Brown’s story today, Drew Lachey explained his proposed “Glee”-style reality TV show about the revived musical theater major at the School for Creative & Performing Arts to the school’s governing board yesterday. Here’s a link to her story in which he said creative control would be retained by his Flying Pigs Production (which he owns with brother Nick), and would not be relinquished to any network. MTV had creative control over Nick’s “Taking the Stage” in 2009-2010. Parents also complained about how MTV cameras disrupted class work.

“If the show happens, we heard about the concerns … with the last show. I will do anything within my power to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” Drew said.

“We’re not going to try to go to MTV and do a show like ‘Jersey Shore’ or a ‘Desperate Housewives of CPS.’ We want this to be a positive thing for Cincinnati. We don’t want to capitalize on the negative. There are network homes for what we want to do. There are people who want good TV.”

Is another SPCA reality TV show a good idea? Would you watch?
