CBC talk-show fixture George Stroumboulopoulos will host a weekly interview program on CNN this summer.

According to Deadline.com, the new and still untitled show will film before a live audience in Los Angeles and will join CNN's primetime lineup in early summer.

In a format not unlike CBC's current George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, the new CNN show will feature in-depth interviews interspersed with musical performances. The series is being produced for CNN by Sony Picture TV's Embassy Row production company.

This is not the first time that Stroumboulopoulos, 40, has been tapped for American television. Back in 2006, the former MuchMusic VJ hosted ABC's summer talent-search program The One: Making a Music Star, which was cancelled after two weeks due to low ratings.

On CBC, Stroumboulopoulos has also appeared on the series The Greatest Canadian, where he successfully presented the case for Canadian politician Tommy Douglas to earn the title. Stroumbolopoulos has also hosted radio broadcasts for Toronto station CFRB and Montreal's CJAD.
