Here’s a Hollywood couple you probably didn’t see coming: Vince Vaughn and Glenn Beck. The “Wedding Crashers” star and former Fox News host announced today that they’re developing “Pursuit of Truth,” a reality show for Beck’s network, TheBlaze TV.
The show will pit 20 documentary filmmakers against each other as they compete for financing and distribution for their film. (Ben Affleck and Matt Damon did a similar series with HBO, “Project Greenlight,” in the early ’00s.) Vaughn and Beck’s nine episode series will launch on TheBlaze TV in spring 2013.
Beck shared the news on his radio show today. “I am proud to announce that Vince Vaughn and I are going to be the executive producers,” he said. “That should make everybody’s head spin. ‘What the hell is Vince Vaughn doing with a crazy man?’ I know, that’s what my friends say. ‘Glenn, what are you doing with the crazy man Vince Vaughn?’ Yes. It’s great, isn’t it? I love it.”
