MILLCREEK BROADCASTING Top 40/Rhythmic KUUU (U92)/SALT LAKE CITY APD/MD KEVIN CRUISE is working on a new reality TV show featuring the behind-the-scenes action at the station. CRUISE is teaming with reality TV veteran TJ BATES on the show that has the working title, THE $TATION. The show will follow CRUISE and the KUUU staff as the Hip-Hop station strives for success in conservative SALT LAKE CITY.
BATES, most known for his role in OXYGEN’s THE JANICE DICKINSON MODELING AGENCY, moved to behind the camera to help produce WE’s BRIDEZILLAS after DICKINSON’s show. Moving back to SALT LAKE CITY from LOS ANGELES, BATES began his own production company, DEJAVU PRODUCTIONS.
In a press release BATES commented, "THE $TATION gives Hip-Hop fans a side of the music industry most have never seen." The show's pilot episode is in post-production now.
