Yep, you read that title correctly. It seems that Dave Ramsey has signed a contract with CBS to do a reality TV show series pilot as well as develop a syndicated series. The reality TV show is tentatively titled The Dave Ramsey Project and “is designed to teach valuable financial lessons to the families on his show while also sharing his wisdom with the viewing public.”
CBS has ordered a reality series pilot from Dave Ramsey, the inspiring and passionate personal finance coach/radio host/best-selling author, who will produce and star in the project. THE DAVE RAMSEY PROJECT (working title) will utilize his unique and infectious approach to help families analyze and understand their dismal financial state to then take steps to get themselves out of debt…
“Dave Ramsey has the potential to be a true force on the television screen, combining a dynamic and inspiring persona with knowledge and expertise of how to make a difference in someone’s life,” said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. “It’s a distinct and relatable concept from a very charismatic on-screen personality who engages his guests and audience with his own unique style and flare.”
I’m not sure if this is a good thing or not, but I guess if it’s able to get basic personal finance information out to the public, it’s better than nothing. It certainly will be interesting and worth seeing how it develops.
