Back in August, we told you that Joe Buck would be hosting a talk show on AT&T U-Verse/DirecTV’s Audience Network. We now know when it will begin airing. Thanks to a new promo that has begun airing on the Audience Network as well as it being released on YouTube, the series will premiere in November.
It gets a nice timeslot, 8 p.m. ET/PT. And the promo gave you the entire guest list for the season: Buck’s NFL on Fox partner Troy Aikman, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter (who will be the first guest), MMA fighter Georges St-Pierre, Triple Crown-winning horse trainer Bob Baffert, former Yankees manager Joe Torre, US women’s soccer star Abby Wambach, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, former St. Louis Cardinals and Oakland A’s manager Tony La Russa, surfer Kelly Slater, MMA fighter Chuck Liddell, former Cowboys coach and current Fox NFL Sunday analyst Jimmy Johnson and NHL legend Wayne Gretzky.
The show was taped over the summer in front of a live studio audience at the Manhattan Beach Studios in California. While the show’s season has already been taped, the description at the website where audiences could obtain tickets is rather interesting:
The adult and hour‐long conversation will be to the world of sports what shows like DINNER FOR FIVE and INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO are to the world of Film and Television and CHARLIE ROSE and TERRI GROSS are to the world of popular culture. Filmed in front of an audience and hosted by Joe Buck, Undeniable creates a genuine and honest conversation about who these legends are, how they approach things, what they’ve learned and what lies ahead. The show doesn’t search for controversy, but rather seeks insight into true icons of the game and how they’ve succeeded so far above the rest.
Interesting comparison to Charlie Rose and NPR’s Terri Gross, but there’s a potential for the show to be good especially with the guests for the season.
Undeniable with Joe Buck premieres Wednesday, November 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Audience Network, AT&T U-Verse channel 1114 and DirecTV channel 239.
