Actors Reporter Hosts’ Appearances April to June 2011

Joe Sabatino

  • June 29th USA Network will air pilot of Joe Sabatino’s NECESSARY ROUGHNESS
    Inspired by a true story based on Joe’s sister, Dr. Donna Dannenfelser (co-supervising producer with Joe)
    Necessary Roughness focuses on a tough, sexy Long Island divorcee (Callie Thorne) who re-energizes her
    life and career when she becomes a therapist for a
    professional football team. Underestimated at every
    turn, she succeeds beyond all expectations and soon
    finds herself the most sought-after therapist for
    high-profile clients. Athletes, musicians, politicians,
    and others living in the spotlight – all in a moment of
    crises – clamor for her unique brand of tough love

    Necessary Roughness had 100%retention (meaning no one tuned out) and it pulled 4.7 million viewers and its viewing audience climbed all through the show!!! (Necessary Roughness beat Suits and held fast with Royal Pains!) These numbers are unheard of – expecially for a pilot show. Congratulations Necessary Roughness.
