Dr. Drew is trying to compete with Ryan Seacrest to be the busiest man in show business. He’s the host of Celebrity Rehab and Sober House, and continues as host of his radio show Loveline, and now RadarOnline.com has learned the TV doc has been named the host of a new show called Lifechangers.
The show, produced by Telepictures, is described as “bringing all the self-help books in the bookstore to life.” Sources tell us that Drew had a very lengthy meeting with Telepictures execs last week. Dr. Drew's spokesperson hasn't returned our calls for comment.
Extra, a division of Telepictures, has been developing the show for more than 6 months now and Lifechangers segments regularly appear on the syndicated TV show.
Sources say there is tremendous interest from affiliates for Lifechangers. A pilot was done last year, but it was shelved. Now a source says “with Dr. Drew’s name attached to it, the show is sure to be a hit.”
