Ryan Seacrest Extends Pact with E!


E! Entertainment has extended its agreement with Ryan Seacrest, who will continue serving as host and executive producer of the network’s successful signature franchise Live from the Red Carpet.

Seacrest joined E! in 2006. Seacrest also continues to produce popular unscripted series for E! via Ryan Seacrest Productions, including Keeping Up with the Kardashians, in partnership with Bunim/Murray Productions, as well as spin-offs of the megahit franchise.

“Ryan has been a valued partner and a beloved face on Live from the Red Carpet for over a decade and we look forward to continuing our collaboration for the hit franchise,” said Adam Stotsky, the president of E! “In addition, Ryan has been instrumental as a producing partner in helping to solidify E!’s position as a leader in unscripted programming for millennial women. It’s exciting that together we will be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of Keeping Up with the Kardashians later this year.”

“I’m excited to continue my longstanding relationship with E! and the Live from the Red Carpet franchise,” said Seacrest. “NBCUniversal—Adam, along with Steve, Bonnie, Frances and too many other executives to name them all—have been very supportive of me and my various creative endeavors this past decade, and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
