Search begins for an Aussie Jerry Springer

The man behind the The Jerry Springer Show is headed to Australia to talk to networks about finding an Aussie Springer.  

Richard Dominick, who took the Jerry Springer Show from cancellation to global syndication, will be working with Sydney based production firm Blacksheep on the project. He is due in Australia shortly to talk to the TV networks.

The anticipated first stop is Australia with the UK, Japan, Amsterdam, Germany and America to follow. The proposed reality series will pit Australian Springer wannabes against one another as they complete challenges judged by a panel of experts. The winner will receive a contract to host their own talk show.

Blacksheep has already worked on projects in America with Richard Dominick Productions – which is also involved in The Amazing Race – as well as representing Dominick’s interests in Australia including plans to bring Springer himself down under.
