It’s unclear whether the Splash show will feature the celebrity photo agency’s equivalent to ice tea-sipping Harvey Levin. But the gist of the upcoming program, per today’s press release, sounds remarkably similar:
The half-hour television magazine series features the latest in celebrity news with exclusive footage captured by Splash News’ army of Hollywood digital papparazzi [sic].
Misspelling the word “paparazzi” in the press release is not exactly an auspicious start.* Corbis-owned Splash is partnered on the TV project with Shankly Productions, a London and West Hollywood based subsidiary of the Libra Group.
*Update – 09/14/11: Regarding the “papparazi” typo, SSA Public Relations owner Steve Syatt contacted us via email to clarify that: a) It was his firm’s mistake, not Splash’s; and, b) Despite quickly catching and correcting the error in-house, a first draft of the release was accidentally the one that was initially sent out.
