JEAN PIGOZZI ASKS THE QUESTIONS OTHERS WON'T IN NEW ESQUIRE NETWORK ORIGINAL SERIES "MY FRIENDS CALL ME JOHNNY"

- Executive Produced by Legendary Producer Joel Silver, Eight-Part Series Debuts September 3 at 10/9c -

Beverly Hills, CA - July 14, 2014 - Heir to a European auto fortune, photographer, art collector, successful tech investor, jetsetter and creator of the men's clothing brand LimoLand. It's Jean "Johnny" Pigozzi's world ... you just don't know it yet. Esquire Network's new original series MY FRIENDS CALL ME JOHNNY provides a twist on the typical talk show, with Pigozzi traveling the globe to ask the most provocative questions of his famous friends - as only he can. Executive produced by Joel Silver and Silver Pictures Television, Inc., the eight-part MY FRIENDS CALL ME JOHNNY premieres Wednesdays at 10/9c, beginning September 3.

MY FRIENDS CALL ME JOHNNY provides an exclusive, unfiltered view from inside Pigozzi's world. Called "one of the world's greatest characters" by Sir Elton John, and "the inventor of the selfie," Pigozzi has traveled in the same stylish circles as the rich and famous his entire life - always with his trusty Leica camera in hand.

Relentlessly curious and fearlessly bold, Johnny's not afraid to ask the most direct and provocative questions of film icons, music moguls, renowned artists and business leaders. Each episode of MY FRIENDS CALL ME JOHNNY features candid and open conversations with luminaries including actor Michael Douglas; producers Brett Ratner, Stephen Chao and Lorne Michaels; chefs and lifestyle brand gurus Martha Stewart, Mario Batali and Roy Choi; entrepreneurs including recently ousted American Apparel founder Dov Charney and hotelier Andre Balazs; fashion moguls Calvin Klein and Giambattista Valli; former director of the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles) Jeffrey Deitch; PR maven Peggy Siegal, publisher Jann Wenner; and more.

MY FRIENDS CALL ME JOHNNY is executive produced for Esquire Network by Joel Silver, of Silver Pictures Television, Inc. Josh Oreck, Stacey Fields and Jean Pigozzi also serve as executive producers.
