Production has begun on "Greg Behrendt’s Wake-Up Call," a one-hour weekly reality series in which Greg Behrendt, acclaimed author of He’s Just Not That Into You, will address one couple’s major issues and use his knowledge of relationships to give them the tools to fix theirs. Through his off-the-cuff comedy and bruised-and-battered romantic experience, Greg takes a close look from a different angle to give our couple advice from a friend, but also that of sage wisdom. "Greg Behrendt’s Wake-Up Call" will air midseason on the ABC Television Network.
Behrendt has co-authored two best selling books, He’s Just Not Than Into You and the recently released It’s Called a Break-Up Because It’s Broken. This fall he will also host his own syndicated talk show for Sony Pictures Television. Based in Los Angeles, Behrendt was a consultant for three consecutive seasons on HBO’s "Sex and the City," bringing his original male point-of-view to the writing staff. His acclaimed standup comedy has been seen on HBO, "The Tonight Show," "Late Show with David Letterman," "Late Night with Conan O’Brien" and Comedy Central.
"Greg Behrendt’s Wake-Up Call" is produced by Avalon Television Inc. Executive producers are Greg Behrendt, David Martin, Julie James, Jon Thoday, Richard Allen-Turner and James Bruce. Co-executive producer is Katherine Hall, and Tommy Calabrese is the executive in charge of production. Co-creators Garth Holsinger and Jason Irwin also serve as producers.
