Local TV Notes: Robert Redford's Rahm & Rich Kids' Reality

"CNN's Chicagoland docu series is apt to be a ratings bonanza when the 8-part unscripted series starts airing on March 6, a date stated in a promo, now airing, but still unconfirmed by CCN," Reel Chicago reports.

"It was produced by Robert Redford's new Sundance Productions set up for TV and multimedia."

Fear the worst.

CNN formally says the show will give viewers "an inside look of the city's leaders and residents as they work to improve the public education system and neighborhood and youth safety."

"Chicago's vibrant culture and opportunities inherent in this 21st century, world-class city run alongside profound daily challenges," said Redford, who was the series' executive producer.

"Much of it falls on the shoulders of its tough, visionary mayor, his team and people doing heroic work in neighborhoods throughout the city."

Indeed, the promo displays a positive focus on Mayor Rahm Emanuel (he's being called "America's dominant mayor") for the way in which he has handled these hot button issues that have keep Chicagoans in a constant uproar.

Rahm Emanuel, our hero. I wonder if Redford will mention his somewhere-in-the-teens approval rating.

Rich Kids Reality
This just in:

ATTENTION CHICAGO: E! CELEBRATES DEBUT OF "#RICHKIDS OF BEVERLY HILLS" WITH SOCIAL MEDIA HUNT GIVING AWAY LUXURY DESIGNER ITEMS IN CHICAGO ON 1/19

Um, okay.

"E!'s new series #RichKids of Beverly Hills takes viewers inside an elite circle of wealthy twenty-somethings whose closets are filled with items from the world's most luxurious brands . . . "

Is there a flash mob we can join instead?

Reminder Of How Much They're Paid
* "WBBM-Ch. 2 weekday news anchor Rob Johnson has sold his six-bedroom house in Hinsdale for $1.08 million," Bob Goldsborough reports for the Tribune.

"The co-anchor of Channel 2's 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts, Johnson, 45, had owned the 3,440-square-foot brick-and-stone home since buying it through a bank trust in 2004 for $1.17 million."

* "Former WFLD-Ch. 32 news anchor Jan Jeffcoat has sold her three-bedroom, single-family house in the Roscoe Village neighborhood for $725,000," Goldsborough also reports.
