Glenn Beck and Vince Vaughn are going into the reality TV business together. The former Fox News host and the actor-producer will be executive producers of Pursuit Of The Truth, a competition series for Beck’s online network TheBlaze. Beck announced the deal on his radio show today. “That should make everybody’s head spin. What the hell is Vince Vaughn doing with a crazy man? I know, that’s what my friends say. Glenn, what are you doing with the crazy man Vince Vaughn,” said the host. TheBlaze, Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show Prods and Go Go Lucky Entertainment will produce the show, which will see 20 contestants fight for the prize of financing and global distribution for their documentary feature. “Our goal is to create a powerful annual platform to help filmmakers tell important and engaging stories,” said Wild West’s Peter Billingsley. The series is currently taking applications online until January 31. Go Go will lead the production of the nine-episode Truth, and producers say the series will debut on TheBlaze in spring 2013.

Brady Bunch Reboot CBSEXCLUSIVE: America’s most famous blended TV family is eyeing a comeback. CBS is developing a new take on the cult comedy The Brady Bunch, co-developed and executive produced by Vince Vaughn. The multi-camera comedy project, which has received a script order, will be produced by CBS TV Studios.

Vince Vaughn Brady BunchThe original sitcom, created by Sherwood Schwartz and starring Robert Reed and Florence Henderson, ran on ABC from 1969-1974. It centered on Mike Brady (Reed), a widowed architect with three sons, Greg, Peter and Bobby, who marries Carol Ann Martin (Henderson), a single mother with three daughters, Marcia, Jan and Cindy.

On the new next-generation Brady Bunch, written by Mike Mariano (Raising Hope, My Name Is Earl), a divorced Bobby Brady, with children of his own, is remarried to a woman who also has kids, and together they also share a child. In addition, their ex-spouses are still part of their lives. The new setup reflects the evolution of family dynamics over the past four decades. Back in 1969, Schwartz wanted Carol to be a divorcée but the network refused, so the end of her first marriage was never addressed. Read More »
