ITV’s Leftfield Pictures set for Facebook talk show

ITV America’s Leftfield Pictures has teamed with Scooter Braun’s SB Projects to develop and produce a talk show format for Facebook Watch.

The talk show will be hosted by Lewis Howes (pictured) the author, entrepreneur and host of The School of Greatness podcast.

Titled Breakthrough with Lewis Howes, the show will premiere on Facebook later this year.

It will contain human-interest pieces and expert interviews to inspire and empower viewers to reach their full potential, accomplish their goals and share their achievements.

Each episode will dive deep into one specific topic, falling under themes such as happiness, forgiveness, financial success and social equality.

Filmed in an intimate Brooklyn loft space, each show will feature a live studio audience made up of individuals all dealing with the day’s topic, and who participate in the conversation.

At the end of each episode, Howes presents a call to action, with strategies, practices and tips to help guests – and Facebook Watch viewers — navigate their challenges and rise above them.

As part of the weekly format, there will also be a live episode every Wednesday, where Howes addresses viewer feedback and answers Facebook community questions about the week’s topic.

He’ll also use a dedicated Facebook Group to check guest and viewer progress throughout the week.

Breakthrough with Lewis Howes is executive produced by Shawn Witt, Gretchen Palek, Jordana Hochman and Rob Dauber for Leftfield Pictures, with Scooter Braun and Scott Manson executive producing for SB Projects. Lewis Howes will also serve as executive producer.

“Lewis has an incredible talent for connecting with people and inspiring them to share their struggles and triumphs,” said Braun.

“He is the perfect person to helm this transformative and inspiring show. We are excited to put something positive like this out into the world.”
