Kelsey Grammer launches the RightNetwork
According to actor Kelsey Grammer, things that just are not right: ShamWows, dogs named Steven and partisan politics.
Ostensibly what is just right: Grammer's new television network, the RightNetwork, which the actor launched today with Ed Snider, chairman of Comcast-Spectacor and owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and Flyers.
The network will offer a mixture of documentaries, reality television shows, stand-up comedy and sitcoms targeted at conservative viewers.
"If you have NBC, ABC, you have entire networks flooded with a very particular point of view," Grammer said. "They won't admit it, but it's clearly the way it is. There's plenty of room for us."
The lineup will include "Moving Numbers," a show about a fictional Senate campaign, and
"Running," a reality series that will follow first-time candidates as they run for office.
The shows will be delivered as videos-on-demand for Verizon FiOS subscribers and Nokia phone subscribers. It had been reported that Comcast would distribute the shows, but the cable provider released a statement that it would not include the network in its distribution.
