Millennials-targeted network Pivot has signed Meghan McCain to co-host the network’s daily, late night talk show TakePart Live.
McCain, the daughter of Senator John McCain and host of Pivot series Raising McCain, will join Jacob Soboroff as co-host of the late night series, the network announced during its Television Critics Association tour press conference.
“Meghan has a tremendous following and continues to win audiences on Pivot and beyond and, simply put, we wanted more of her,” said Pivot president Evan Shapiro. “This new role gives her a format to have a continuing dialogue with our audience about what most affects them, and – together with Jacob – offer perspectives from their generation.”
The network also announced a second season renewal of Popular Internet variety series HitRecord On TV prior to the Joseph Gordon-Levitt-produced series’ Jan. 18 debut on the network, said Shapiro. Other network announcements include the Jan. 25 debut of bref, which features 41, minute-long creative shorts with English subtitles that follows the antics of a single, almost 30-year-old Parisian; and Freestyle Love Supreme, a half-hour original special featuring free-style hip hop performances debuting March 6.
