Trump Pushes Apprentice on Broadway
"We are really looking at it, and we've had a lot of interest from Broadway," Trump said on Tuesday at a press conference to promote the new season of his NBC series, reports the Associated Press. Burnett said several songs have already been written for the production.
There are no specifics about who on Broadway is interested, but Trump promised more details after a proposal is developed.
Typically, the 58-year-old developer (and groom-to-be this Saturday) predicted the endeavor "would be a smash."
He also predicted success for the third Apprentice season, which kicks off with a 90-minute special on Thursday. Two nine-person teams will be divided between high school and college graduates.
Asked if, in the wake of the hirings of Bill Rancic and Kelly Perdew in the first two outings, he felt any need to pick a female winner, Trump said negative.
"The women have done very well on the show ... in many cases better than the men," he said, adding: "I can't think like that, because then it just becomes statistically who's going to get in."
As for his own TV future, he said NBC "wants to renew my contract very badly," though he'll probably stick around through season five, depending upon the show's success.
