May 27, 2010 at 11:59 AM (PT)
A benchmark feature of the syndicated ELVIS DURAN AND THE MORNING SHOW is the "Phone Tap," in which listeners set up acquaintances for crank calls from show members. Now, ATLAS MEDIA and the ELVIS DURAN GROUP are producing a TV show called "PHOWNED!" based on the concept. Five episodes of the show have been slated for SPIKE-TV's 2010-2011 lineup.
A press release from SPIKE stated, "PHOWNED!" celebrates the art of the perfect gag phone call. The show features phone calls to sons, daughters, parents, and friends and showcases how easily people's buttons are pushed to the limit with fresh and unique story lines. The team of "PHOWNED!" callers is made up of AMERICA's most experienced gag phone call generators from the "ELVIS DURAN AND THE MORNING SHOW," heard on NEW YORK's top rated Z100, and syndicated nationally."
