Rove LA will premiere with a good list of guests, no doubt indicative of the rapport he has built up with his many celeb interviews during his time with TEN.
First guests are Lisa Kudrow, Kathy Griffin and Entourage‘s Jerry ‘Turtle’ Ferrara.
A week later it’s Hugh Jackman, Steve Carrell and Tim Gunn.
McManus is also working the press, giving feature interviews to News Ltd. and Fairfax today.
Yesterday the NT News dug up an old article about John ‘Rove’ McManus who once worked in the Digital Department at the Australian Children’s Television Foundation, working on Li’l Elvis Jones and the Truckstoppers. I had no idea!
This exciting new celebrity talk show shot in front of a live audience at CBS Television City in Los Angeles, incorporates the hottest guests every week and joining Rove for his premiere episode will be mega sitcom star from Friends Lisa Kudrow, Emmy Award winning comedian Kathy Griffin and Entourage star Jerry ‘Turtle’ Ferrara.
Rove LA will continue to deliver star power every week including confirmed guests for episode two (September 26)- America’s funniest man Steve Carrell, home grown international superstar Hugh Jackman and the very stylish Tim Gunn from Project Runway.
The one hour series will also provide viewers with Rove’s take on the LA way of life and brings a weekly slice of Hollywood taking you beyond the tourist traps to discover why the phrase ‘Only in LA’ was coined.
Monday, September 19 at 8.30pm AEST on FOX8.
