LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - ESPN is getting into the morning-show business.

The cable sports giant is developing a two-hour show, called "Cold Pizza," for ESPN2. The series, targeted for fall 2003, will ape the format of the network morning shows, but with a focus on sports, according to ESPN's executive vice president for programming, Mark Shapiro.

"Think ['Good Morning America'], think sports, think fans, think fashion," Shapiro tells The Hollywood Reporter. He made the announcement at ESPN's annual upfront presentation to advertisers in New York.

"Cold Pizza" is an effort by the network to expand original programming on ESPN2, as is "Drive Time," which will air from 5 to 7 p.m. weekdays beginning in February. The show's title and its viewer call-in format are references to sports talk radio.

In addition, ESPN will launch a nightly version of its magazine show "Outside the Lines," hosted by Bob Ley, in April.

-------------

I'm all for it; I just want to be assured that the PTI rerun on the Deuce doesn't get killed because of Drive Time.

Speaking of PTI, was that Jon Stewart at the very end of the show.

Between Around The Horn, Sports Reporters II, and Beg, Borrow, and Deal, that's a whole lot of crappy shows on ESPN.

Thank God for PTI, and those NBA on ESPN commercials.

Jon Stewart was at the end of the first segment, so I'm assuming yes because I didn't see him an apparent second time at the end of the show.

Remember when MTV used to play music videos? I hope we're not saying "Hey remember when ESPN used to show sports?" in 20 years.

Speaking of ESPN related news, has anyone read the latest Sports Guy column?

No longer the "Boston" Sports Guy, and sounds like we're going to have to get used to seeing even less of him around than we did this summer.

They happen in threes, so who else is leaving? (CRZ, Sports Guy and ???)

BTW,

I got to visit the PTI set on Monday and it was very cool.

More later, maybe here, definitely in the magazine.

Here, Mark. Here. Put it in as a guest column. Please.

Okay.
