Joseph Gordon-Levitt returning to TV
Joseph Gordon Levitt is coming back to a small-screen near you.
The former 3rd Rock from the Sun star is set to host a variety show based on his collaborative site, hitReCord, for Participant Media’s newly announced cable network, pivot.
The series, HitRECord on TV!, will feature contributions—like films, live performances, animation and more—from online community members, which Levitt will select, piece together and present on-air, the network announced at its upfront presentation in New York City today.
The millennial-geared network will also feature a host of other original series, including a period saga about William Shakespeare by Craig Pearce, the writer behind The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge, and Romeo + Juliet, and a docu-series with Meghan McCain.
Pivot is expected to launch August 1.
