Palladia Orders More ‘Live From Daryl’s House’
Daryl Hall’s Live From Daryl’s House will produce more episodes for the Viacom-owned Palladia high-definition music channel under a renewal announced today.
Production will begin this fall on the Hall-hosted performance series, which tapes without an audience at a new club called called “Daryl’s House” in Pawling, N.Y., with the new shows premiering in early 2015 on Palladia, in the VH1 app and www.lfdh.com, where previous installments are archived.
This past season Hall collaborated with Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Amos Lee, Gavin Degraw, Johnnyswim and Brett Dennen, with a sixth as-yet-unannounced episode also coming. The new order is for another six episodes of the show, which airs Thursday nights on Palladia.
Starting April 19, current-season shows will air on VH1 on Saturday mornings, the network said.
"Palladia understands what my show is about and I look forward to my continued relationship with them," Hall said in a release.
The show is a joint venture between Hall’s Good Cop Bad Cop Productions and Palladia. Executive producers for the show include Hall along with Jonathan Wolfson, who is Daryl Hall and John Oates manager. Guests for the upcoming season will be announced later in the year.
The deal was brokered by Wolfson and Ben Zurier, EVP, Programming Strategy, VH1, VH1 Classic and Palladia.
"I truly value LFDH's alliance with Palladia and I'm thankful for the renewal. The Palladia team – Ben Zurier, Tom Feie and Rick Krim – are the definition of true partners," Wolfson said in the release.
Hall also is working on a DIY Network show, Daryl's Restoration Over-Hall, about his ongoing project to rehabilitate an old captain's house in Connecticut. Live From Daryl's House originated from his former home in the MIllerton, N.Y., area, a house he has since sold. Hall and his longtime performing partner, John Oates, are set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tomorrow night.
LFDH started out as a Web series in 2007. Since then, more than 60 episodes have been produced. Past guests have included Joe Walsh, Todd Rundgren, Nick Lowe, Dave Stewart and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top; soul and R&B artists Smokey Robinson, Cee Lo Green, Booker T & The MGs, and Sharon Jones; big-league singer/songwriters such as Rob Thomas, Jason Mraz, Gavin DeGraw, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump; country artists such as Shelby Lynne; and upcoming new acts like Fitz & The Tantrums, Neon Trees, Johnnyswim and Parachute.
