Excited to share details of my new venture/adventure. If YOU could embark on a new adventure what would it be? I’ll tell you mine coming up— Robin Roberts (@RobinRoberts) September 3, 2014
Rock’n Robin Productions will make all sorts of shows including documentaries, informational shows, lifestyle reality series and live special events.
Robin Roberts Production firm is currently working on five projects that include a special Thanksgiving themed show for ABC, a digital series titled “In the Game with Robin Roberts” for espnW, a news-driven documentary and pilots of two reality shows.
“In the Game with Robin Roberts” is the first production of Rock’n Robin firm that will premiere today on espnW. In today's episode, Roberts talks with the NFL's first openly gay player, Michael Sam.
Despite of launching her own production firm, Robin Roberts will still continue to co-anchor “Good Morning America” for ABC. “I’m blessed to be able to do even more of what I love to do and now reach an even broader audience with programming that will inspire, inform and entertain people,” said Roberts in a press release.
“I’m very excited to get involved in the business and development side of production, and will spend a lot of time working with the team on the creative.” Roberts also added, “I’m so grateful to my ABC and GMA family for supporting the launch of the company.”
Robin Roberts is the president of Rock’n Robin Productions whose official website went live yesterday. The official website of Rock’n Robin Productions will show images of all the projects of Roberts and also behind the scene footage.
The website will also feature a new blog titled "N’Courage" in which Roberts and her staff will post blogs about all those courageous people "who despite extraordinary odds have the courage to thrive and encourage others to do the same."
While Roberts is the president, she made ABC News Executive John R. Green the Executive Vice President of Programming and Development at her firm. Green will be responsible for the day to day operations of Rock’n Robin Productions.
“Robin is an extraordinarily gifted journalist. I am honored to work with her on this new adventure,” said Green. “The programming we create will, in many ways, reflect who Robin is: smart, inspiring, and fun. Robin’s enthusiasm is infectious. Working with her is a true labor of love.”
Just like Robin, Green will also remain at ABC News as Executive Producer of Special Programming. He will oversee prime time specials with Roberts and other network anchors.
“John is incredibly talented and creative with broad experience in developing new programming,” said Roberts. “We have known each other for 15 years and worked on dozens of primetime specials together. I’m thrilled to be partnering with him once again.”
