The independent company will create programming for broadcast and digital properties on ABC as well as other networks, primarily in the reality and non-fiction realm. Rock’n Robin will develop informational shows, documentaries, lifestyle reality series and live special events.
The company has a few projects in development, including a news-driven documentary, a digital series for espnW, a Thanksgiving special for ABC and two reality show pilots. The company’s first production, In the Game with Robin Roberts debuts on espnW Sept. 4.
