MIPTV pulls in the celebs

This year’s MIPTV will be awash with celebrities as the cast of MTV’s popular show Jersey Shore, celebrity chef Chuck Hughes and super model turned businesswoman Elle Macpherson all drop in at the Croisette.


On Monday April 2 Deena Cortese and Vinny Guadagnino from MTV’s hugely popular series Jersey Shore will join MTV’s EVP of programming and head of production Chris Linn to give an inside look at the series and a sneak peak at what can be expected from the fifth season, which will debut on the channel in March.

Chef Chuck Hughes, who rose to fame with his internationally popular show Chuck’s Day Off, will be on hand to promote two of his latest ventures, Chuck’s Week Off: Mexico and Chuckmas. The first is an eight-part tour around Mexico in which Hughes samples the country’s cuisine, while the latter is a one-hour Christmas special. The Canadian chef will also be producing a few of his famous culinary creations at an invite-only cocktail party on April 2.

Meanwhile Australian model Elle Macpherson will be unveiling her new show Fashion Star which is to debut on 13 March on NBC, and will be rolled out globally to 20 countries during spring 2012. The show will follow 14 wannabe fashion designers as they battle it out for the chance to have their creations sold in Saks Fifth Avenue, H&M and Macy’s. Macpherson will also join Ben Silverman, founder and chairman of the US-based multimedia production studio Electus to discuss the future of branded entertainment, providing an internal look at how advertisers, retailers and consumer interests combine within the industry.
