Tribune Broadcast Station Network has revived Wonderama for a new syndicated iteration, per Programming Insider:
Hosted by David Osmond of the beloved Osmond clan, “Wonderama” debuts with a kickoff special exclusive to New York’s PIX11 on Christmas Day, Dec. 25th. This new version will feature a new look; an emphasis on art, music, dance, television, film, sports, cooking and politics; celebrity guests like Tony Dovolani from “Dancing With the Stars,” boxing champion Evander Holyfield and country music star Michael Ray; and a clearance list in primetime fringe blocks in 13 initial U.S. markets effective on Jan. 7, 2017 (with multiple brand extensions on key digital platforms).
Producer Chuck Armstrong said:
“Today’s families are hungry for entertainment they can enjoy together, making now the perfect time for Wonderama’s return. Wonderama provides a one-of-a-kind co-viewing experience that every member of the family can connect and relate to. Our goal is to inspire our audience with content that speaks “to” them in order to convey the message: “Hey, I can do that too!”
