Ryan Seacrest is in late talks to host and executive produce NBC’s upcoming game show, “Million Second Quiz,” an individual with knowledge of the negotiations told TheWrap.
Talks with the multi-hyphenate have lasted over the last few weeks and have been complicated by Seacrest’s schedule.
NBC and Ryan Seacrest Productions declined to comment for this report.
The show would like to shoot in early-September for 12 days in a row. Seacrest, who hosts a morning radio show in Los Angeles as well, has to contend with shooting for “Idol’s” next season.
Seacrest already has a cross-network deal with NBCUniversal that has included roles on “Today,” Olympics coverage and, of course, his work with the E! Network.
