LOS ANGELES, April 28 -- Dr. Drew Pinsky announced today the formation of Dr. Drew Productions, which will be based in Los Angeles and focus on high-quality reality television projects featuring Dr. Drew as well as other talent.

"All projects under the new banner will expand on the Dr. Drew brand of always making a difference," said Howard Lapides.

The first project from the company is a pilot "Estranged with Dr. Drew" where couples decide if they want to reunite or separate. The project is being produced in conjunction with Picture This Television based in New York.

He is a regular guest on CNN's Larry King Live, which he has hosted many times, and is a contributor to The Today Show and most other media outlets.
