NBC execs “haven’t made a decision” about The Apprentice’s future
NBC’s new schedule does not have a home for The Apprentice. But the show may still be renewed for a seventh season.
NBC’s Kevin Reilly “expects to revisit ‘Apprentice’ after upfront week to see if a spot can be cleared on the schedule,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
At the upfront presentations, he said, “We haven’t made a decision. Donald (Trump) still wants to do it, (executive producer) Mark (Burnett) wants to do it.”
Broadcasting & Cable’s report from the upfronts made the show’s future sound a bit better. “We love [Trump,] and we want to stay in business with him. The Apprentice, [is] not dead yet,” Reilly said.
