"There were no antics," replied television producer Bob Horowitz when we asked whether Terrell Owens was a handful during taping of "Superstars." Horowitz, who grew up in California but moved to New Hope about four years ago, is executive producer behind "Superstars," a reprise of ABC's old "Wide World of Sports," that pits athletes and celebrities in physical challenges. It returns to ABC at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
"He was animated, he was heckling, teasing. It was the T.O. you see on the sidelines at an NFL game with his helmet off and his hat on with two minutes left in the game," says Horowitz. The former Eagles receiver, now with the Buffalo Bills, is partnered with model Joanna Krupa on the six-episode series.
Horowitz's company Juma Entertainment, named after his daughters Julia, 14, and Maggie, 16, is also behind "The Singing Bee." The 10-episode sing-along, premieres at 10 p.m. Saturday on CMT, and is hosted by actress Melissa Peterman.
Horowitz says next up for Juma is "Double Exposure," which will air on Bravo, that follows high-end-fashion photographers Markus Klinko and Indrani. Horowitz also produces A&E's "Tattoo Highway."
