New York real estate lawyer John Odoner hopes to launch Jewish Television as a 24-hour digital cable channel early next year, the New York Times says. His planned programming includes a "Crossfire"-inspired show of dueling pundits called "Two Jews, Three Opinions'' and "Jewishly Incorrect,'' a show with comedic political commentary. "Nice Jewish Boyz'' is called "a Jewish 'Man Show,' which will smash the myth of the over-mothered Jewish male" and include scantily dressed women.
"There is a serious nature to this network,'' he said, "but it's not going to be Nebbish Central.''
Advisers include novelist Cynthia Ozick and the newspaper columnist Sidney Zion.
