‘Showtime At the Apollo’ Gets the Series Treatment
‘Showtime at the Apollo’ is getting the full series treatment. FOX has ordered a full season of the series.
The show will air as a weekly series and is slated to premiere during the 2017-2018 season. Steve Harvey will return as host.
“We all had such a blast on the two specials that aired earlier this season that we thought it really deserved being a weekly event,” Harvey said. “But our mission is a little different this time around: Instead of just putting on a great show, we’re going to do that and find the next great comic and the next big music star. That’s what the Apollo is all about. My roots are on that stage, and I can’t wait to be there every week, looking for great talent. Who said you can’t go back home again?”
