With Harry, he makes his foray into daytime talk show hosting. Harry is a variety show, a throwback to family-friendly shows of previous eras, which incorporates a mixture of different elements – from comedic man-on-the-street interviews to musical performance segments, from field pieces to audience participation, from comedic sketches to parodies and unpredictable surprises.
The host of Harry, Harry Connick Jr., is an extremely prolific and versatile performer, musician, and personality. He has beaten the odds of his humble upbringing in New Orleans, leveraging his clear musical talents to build a successful career first in music, then in film and television and beyond. In addition to his success on stage, screen, and behind the scenes composing music, Connick has recently served as a judge on the American Idol television series, for the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth seasons. He was among the judges of the final season, alongside Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and host Ryan Seacrest. In contrast to his wide appeal serving as a musical expert for wannabe talents from all over the country, Connick is also a family man, with a wife and three daughters. Beyond this, he has a great deal of experience performing live and on tour, including a tour this past summer 2015. Therefore, his “man on the street” segments will be particularly amusing, taking his fame to everyday people on the street and focusing on comedy and discussion topics. On top of this, viewers will surely get a dose of Connick’s musical talents through his performances alone and with guest artists.
Harry is produced and distributed by NBCUniversal, and yet it will play principally on Fox stations – that is, it will be in national syndication on Fox-owned TV stations in at least 17 markets. The head writers and executive producers of Harry are Justin and Eric Stangel, a talented brother's team who served as head writers on The Late Show with David Letterman, from 1998 to 2013. During their tenure, Late Show won two Emmy Awards, in 2001 and 2002, out of a total of 21 Emmy nominations and 4 nominations for the Writers Guild of America. Therefore, they will surely bring their hilarious and successful pedigree to Harry, conceiving of a vibrant and original series of sketches and ideas for Harry Connick Jr.’s daytime outing. The additional executive producers for Harry are Harry Connick Jr. himself, as well as Ann Marie Wilkins, the longtime manager for Connick as well as other musicians such as Connick’s longtime friend and saxophonist, Branford Marsalis. Connick will certainly attract a fascinating variety of celebrities and musical performances to accompany his show, in addition to comedic sketches and audience participation.
