Though probably best known as the co-host of the long-running ABC reality singing show “American Idol”, Ryan Seacrest is involved with many other broadcasts and ventures. Also well-known for co-hosting the ABC morning show “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” and his syndicated morning radio show “On Air With Ryan Seacrest“, he also runs a production company, Ryan Seacrest Productions, has a menswear line called Distinction and a men’s skincare line called Polish and runs his own charity, the Ryan Seacrest Foundation.
His production company produces such shows as the reality series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and its various spin-offs, the “E! Live from the Red Carpet” awards show specials and the NBC police show “Shades of Blue” with Jennifer Lopez. According to the NY Times, Ryan Seacrest Productions also produce programming for Bravo, YouTube, Netflix, ABC and more.
Ryan Seacrest can also be recognized from hist hosting and producing duties on the annually broadcast, seminal “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” every New Year’s Eve. Seacrest had a chance to work with Clark before his passing and says he greatly admired the man and learned much from him.
Other Ryan Seacrest productions include “Food Revolution”, “Bromance”, “Shahs of Sunset”, “Mixology” and “the Million Second Quiz” in addition to many others. He got his start as a reporter on “E! News Live” in 1996.
Though many of Ryan Seacrest Productions’ shows are in reality television the company has experience with scripted television as well. There are upcoming projects such as “Life with Kylie” and an untitled comedy show starring comedian Gabriel Iglesias coming out as well.
His menswear line Distinction can be found exclusively at Macy’s, and his Polish line of men’s skincare products was developed in collaboration with dermatologists. Polish is designed to meet the unique needs of men’s skin, as most skincare products and lotions are geared more toward women. Skincare is an important part of Ryan Seacrest’s routine, which includes daily workouts. He can be seen each morning with co-host Kelly Ripa on ABC and on the upcoming season of “American Idol” next fall, also on ABC.
