"Live From Daryl's House" Heading to Broadcast TV
Thu, 22 Sep 2011 12:38:57
After nearly four years as an Internet sensation, Daryl Hall's Live From Daryl's House web TV show is making the move to broadcast TV. Woot woot!
The award-winning music and conversation program will debut in 95 markets on Sept. 24 with back-to-back half-hour episodes featuring Train and Fitz & the Tantrums.
"This is the logical extension of what we started with a flip cam," Hall told Billboard.com. "Television is still a big factor in getting to a lot of people, so I think that I'm going to get a slightly different audience showing it on television. I think that it will be perceived slightly differently, but the numbers are obviously going to get bigger and bigger just being on television."
Even though he is switching formats, Hall is keeping the formula. He said he's "not changing anything; it's an Internet show that is being shown on television, so I'm not adapting the show at all in any way to be a 'TV' show. In my first couple of shows it was real homemade, but after that I went, 'No, eventually I would like to show this and sell DVDs' and I had that future in my head, so we improved the production values as we went along."
The show is taped at Hall's home studio in Millerton, NY, which is about 100 miles north of NYC.
