Will Packer’s ‘Central Ave’ is Closing Down Production

Central Ave

According to the website Urban Hollywood 411, it has been reported that Will Packer’s multicultural entertainment news show Central Ave is shutting down and looking for a new home.

In a matter of weeks, multiple individuals with ties to the entertainment magazine show, say executives notified staffers earlier this month that production will end in February 2021.

“They’re looking for a new home,” said one source, who was not authorized to speak on behalf of the show. The individual added that the possibility of the freshman strip finding a new home is “not likely.” A second source added, “Everyone on the show knows it’s ending.”

The weekly series from Will Packer Media and Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury launched its 2020-2021 season in September, after a test run in 2019.

The program airs on weekends with two half-hour episodes on network-owned Fox Television Stations, and on other affiliate stations in syndication. Fox referred inquiries about the show’s future to the production companies.

Delivering relevant entertainment and pop culture stories through a provocative, socially conscious, and diverse lens, veteran entertainment reporter Julissa Bermudez (BET’s 106 & ParkEmpire Girls) and four-time Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross are hosts of the entertainment magazine show.  

Asked if the entertainment magazine had been canceled, a rep for Will Packer Media responded with “no comment.”
