FBN Developing Alternative Primetime Show

tracy byrnesFox Business Network has announced the development of an original alternative primetime program, “Strange Inheritance,” that will debut later this year. The half-hour documentary show, hosted by Tracy Byrnes, will showcase real-life stories of unconventional inheritances.

“Strange Inheritance” will be produced by an outside production company, Towers Productions LLC. In-house oversight will be managed by Brian Gaffney, who was recently promoted to director of special programming for FBN. Gaffney, previously an executive producer of Fox News’ documentary unit, has been with Fox since 2002.

“A venture like Strange Inheritance helps us diversify our primetime programming. Its eccentric premise is a compelling option for a business audience after hours,” FBN EVP Kevin Magee said in a statement.

FBN says the show will begin production in late February and debut this summer.
