Daryl Hall's online performance series "Live From Daryl's House" will make the transition to television this fall as seven Tribune stations have picked up 36 episodes of the half-hour show.
The half-hour weekend show will be seen on Tribune Broadcasting stations in seven markets, including WPIX New York, KTLA Los Angeles, WGN Chicago, KDAF Dallas and KIAH Houston. Trifecta Entertainment & Media partnered with Scott Sternberg Productions to distribute the show. Sternberg is the show's executive producer.
Hall has filmed 28 episodes, mostly at his home in upstate New York, partnering in each episode with different singer since 2007. Among his guests have ben Smokey Robinson, Sharon Jones, Travis McCoy, members of the Doors, Fitz & the Tantrums and, of course, John Oates. In each episode, Hall reaches into his catalog to perform with the guest and then jams on the guest's material. The show's five cameras capture Hall, his guest and bandmates swapping stories as well.
On the most recent show, Hall performs songs with Guster from his Robert Fripp-produced album "Sacred Songs."
Hall promoted the series most recently at January's NATPE convention, where syndication shows are promoted and sold, in Miami.
On New Year's Eve, WGN broadcast a special edition of "Live from Daryl's House."
