George Stroumboulopoulos sure has come a long way from his days as the cooler-than-thou host of The New Music on MuchMusic. Canadian TV’s most eligible vegan has been tapped to host a new 10-episode series on CNN this summer. The hour-long show, whose name has not yet been released, will be filmed in Los Angeles, and will air during prime time on Fridays starting May 31. The format will be similar the one on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight—namely, celebrity interviews conducted in front of a live audience (the CBC show is still scheduled to return for a tenth season in the fall). The addition to CNN’s summer line up is part of the broadcaster’s ongoing efforts to appeal to a younger audience by bringing in younger, hipper hosts—no word, yet, on whether that includes Strombo’s signature red armchairs.
