“Millennial” marketing continues to be the comedic farce of our time. Pivot TV is revamping its nightly news show Take Part LIVE (produced by the same guys who brought you Watch What Happens Live, Talking Bad, and The Talking Dead) with a new batch of hosts to really shake those millennials out of their apathy. Get it? ‘Cause we’ll be taking part? Live?
Eddie Huang will join cohosts Meghan McCain (yes, that Meghan McCain) and founding host/producer of HuffPost Live Jacob Soboroff four night a week at 10pm, with a special highlights show on Fridays.
According to the press release:
“The hosts will provide their unique perspectives through signature segments including: Meghan’s “No Offense,” where she takes to task the hypocritical actions of celebrities, politicians and other newsmakers; Jacob will dive into stories concerning civil rights and how they can be eroded without us even knowing it; and Eddie will examine what it means to be a conscious consumer.”
The series also claims to present “the opposite of a traditional primetime news program presenting the often nuanced sides of an argument through intelligent, unfiltered conversations with hosts and guests you just won’t see anywhere else.” A nuanced Meghan McCain is something we’re so excited about, you don’t even know.
Take Part Live premieres May 12th at 10pm on Pivot TV.
