“Don’t worry, TV,” promises Jack Black. “Help is on the way!” That’s how the Tropic Thunder star announced his new partnership today with Reveille (The Biggest Loser, The Office) to make TV shows. Black’s production company, Electric Dynamite, has teamed with Reveille to create scripted comedies, as well as animated programs and reality shows for TV and online. “Jack is one of the most talented performers of his generation. This new relationship with Electric Dynamite demonstrates our commitment to expanding our scripted programming slate. Jack has a unique vision, extraordinary talent for comedy,” according to a Reveille statement.
Reveille has four new unscripted shows debuting on the broadcast nets later this year, including Masterchef on Fox, Got to Dance on CBS, and Losing it with Jillian and Breakthrough with Tony Robbins on NBC.
