Jesse Draper, the host of the YouTube online business talk show “The Valley Girl Show,” has reached a deal with 44 Blue Productions to put her quirky web series on television screens as well as develop a new business competition series “What Women (Really) Want.”
Mixing Bloomberg Television and CNBC-style interviews with daytime talk show happy chatter and bright, colorful settings, “The Valley Girl Show” is geared towards a younger audience that wants to know how successful entrepreneurs got to where they are today. The former Nickelodeon actress interviews big names like Ted Turner, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, and asks them questions like how they got their businesses started while mixing in some fun as well, like when she plays Segway polo with Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Draper talked about her collaboration with 44 Blue in a statement: “Ever since I started ‘The Valley Girl Show’ out of my parents’ garage we have looked forward to taking it to television, and 44 Blue couldn’t be a more perfect fit for the type of content we produce. 44 Blue knows the industry and knows how to produce high-quality television. As a well-established production company, they have the experience that we’re looking for in a partner as we expand our brand to TV.”
Rasha Drachkovitch, President of 44 Blue, expressed her excitement in working with Draper and added: “Her tremendous energy and novel approach to the ‘business interview’ have made ‘The Valley Girl Show’ must-see viewing, and we’re certain that anyone who’s tuned in online to see her high-fiving Ted Turner will be excited to see what she does on TV.”
As for Draper’s new series “What Women (Really) Want,” 44 Blue’s Executive Vice President and Co-Founder Stephanie Drachkovitch said that the show is about “identifying creative, forward-thinking products and services designed for women.”
