NBC announced they have signed a first-look production deal with America’s Got Talent host, Nick Cannon and Cannon’s NCredible Entertainment. But what does this mean for Cannon and his role on America’s Got Talent? Take the jump for all the details.
According to NBC, their Alternative, and Late Night Programming President, Paul Telegdy announced the deal with Cannon on Wednesday. The terms of the new contract call for Cannon and NCredible Entertainment to “develop both unscripted and scripted programming for the network.”
Telegdy spoke of the deal saying, “We are gratified to know that this new agreement will expand our successful working relationship with Nick beyond ‘America’s Got Talent’ and allow him to further draw on his notable creative instincts.” He added, “Nick already has produced content for many entertainment genres and formats, and we look forward with great anticipation to his cutting-edge ideas in the months to come.”
So what does this mean for Cannon’s gig on America’s Got Talent? Will he remain the host of the show? Yes, Cannon will return as host on AGT next summer.
“Working closely with Paul Telegdy and the folks at NBC has been incredibly rewarding,” Cannon said. He added, “I am thrilled to expand my role and contributions by creating original programming for the NBC Universal team.”
Cannon has already made a name for himself and has established NCredible Entertainment as “one of the fastest growing brands in entertainment.” In a longstanding relationship with Nickelodeon, Cannon recently celebrated the fourth installment of the HALO Awards, which was “created, executive produced, and hosted by Cannon, under the NCredible Entertainment banner.”
NCredible has another kids show in the works called “Incredible Crew.” Cannon and business partner, Michael Goldman created the show and have produced 13 episodes. A sneak peek of the show will be available on New Year’s Eve and regular episodes are set to begin airing on January 21.
In addition, NCredible is currently casting for the re-launch of “Wild N Out.” They plan to produce 12 episodes that will air on MTV2 in 2013.
