Ross Mathews signs development deal for E! talk show

HollywoodNews.com: After years of regular appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and more recently, Chelsea Lately, Ross Mathews is ready for his close-up.

The 31-year-old TV personality has signed a comprehensive development and talent deal with E! Entertainment, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“It really is the time and I feel like I’m ready now,” he tells THR exclusively. “I know how to speak to the audience. I know how to speak to celebrities. And I know my point of view.”

Under the new one-year agreement, Ross will develop his own talk show pilot in collaboration with Chelsea Handler’s production company, Borderline Amazing Productions. He’ll also officially serve as one of E!’s featured talents.

“We’ve been doing stuff together for a couple years now, but this really makes it official,” he says. “And so what this is going to do is sort of firm up our relationship and say I’m going to be one of E!’s people now When people see my face, I want them to say, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s Ross from E!’ and ‘I know where to tune in to see him.’ ”

He’s come a long ways since his debut as Ross the Intern on Leno’s show a decade ago!

“I’ve been earning my stripes for the past decade,” he tells THR.
