And Speaking of Southerners on TV . . .

We’ll be DVRing two more capital-B big name southerners very soon.

Durham, NC–raised Andre Leon Talley has signed on for three seasons of America’s Next Top Model.  (Vogue readers will have read about ALT’s frequent trips to his hometown–and more specifically Duke University–during his highly publicized battle with the bulge.)

Jon Meacham, the Pulitzer Prize–winning editor in chief of Newsweek–whose Tennessee roots we’ll explore in greater detail in an upcoming post–is in talks with PBS to develop a new weekly show. “Need to Know” will air our country’s dirty public affairs laundry on Friday nights beginning May 7th at 8:30pm. Because nothing says Prime Time like PBS.
