VH1 Takes a Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Craziest Talk Show Ever! The
Jerry Springer Show
'The Springer Hustle' to Premiere Sunday, March 4 at 10 PM*
PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 11 -- For 16 years, America has
been riveted by the outrageous guests and topics that make up "The Jerry
Springer Show." It showcases some of America's most colorful characters,
wild relationships and truly amazing stories.
Now, for the first time, backstage cameras capture life behind the
curtain with VH1's new docu-soap, "The Springer Hustle," an in-depth,
insider's look at how America's most controversial television show is put
Premiering Sunday, March 4 at 10 PM*, the 8 half-hour episodes will
focus on the dedicated team of producers in the eye of the Springer
hurricane; a tight-knit family charged with filling the show with the
wildest real American stories possible. There's Selena, the beautiful and
obsessively driven producer who works relentlessly to make her shows shine.
Toby, one of the show's top producers, whose recent run of bad luck has
sent him into an emotional tailspin. Annette, one of the original
producers, who left the show for a few years, only to be drawn back by the
day-to-day mayhem she couldn't find anywhere else. And all of them,
practically working round the clock to impress their demanding boss Richard
Dominick, who is stingy with the compliments, but loyal to the core.
"The Jerry Springer Show" is a tough place to work. The office is far
from glamorous. The daily grind of making the magic happen takes its toll.
Yet this devoted crew digs deep to present a rogues' gallery of the most
outrageous people ever to sit down in front of a TV camera.
At the center of it all, ringmaster Jerry Springer, the icon whose name
has become synonymous with the never-ending parade of human oddities we've
come to know and love. Springer is currently hosting "The Jerry Springer
Show's" 16th season in national syndication.
