‘Apprentice’ Producers Help Plan RNC

The party is promising a more traditional in-person spectacle with President Trump speaking every night. Coming into this weekend, major TV networks had only a foggy idea of what to expect. Two producers of The Apprentice, where Trump rose to TV stardom, are involved in the planning. Sadoux Kim, a longtime deputy to Apprentice creator Mark Burnett, is a lead consultant on the production. Chuck LaBella, a former NBC entertainment executive who helped produce The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump, is also on the payroll.
