E. J. Brown, the former ESPN basketball analyst who is best known as the producer of the “The Bachelor” reality TV show, is joining the company that owns The Biggest show on Earth, a reality television series in which contestants compete for millions of dollars in cash prizes.
Brown said in a statement on Thursday that he will be joining the show’s production team.
Brown worked as an analyst for “The Bigest Show on Life” for nine years and left the show last month.
He will join the team in a production role that includes writing and producing for “Biggest Show,” a production company that also produces the show for the CBS network.
“The world of ‘The Show’ is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, and this is a big step in the right direction,” Brown said.
“I can’t wait to work with our talented team, and to start working on the show.”
Brown joined the “Bigest Show” production company in 2013 and is the only analyst on the series.
He is the first person from ESPN to join the production company.
“As one of the world’s leading sports analysts, E. Brown will bring years of experience to Biggest, a project that is poised to become the next big step for our company,” CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves said in an email.
“We’re thrilled that E. will be a part of the Biggest team, as we have always seen him as a leading voice in the field of sports analysis.”
Brown was an analyst on “The Show” for three seasons before leaving in December 2017.
He was an ESPN analyst for eight seasons before retiring in 2016.
The Bigest show, which airs Mondays at 9 p.m.
ET, is a collaboration between CBS Corp., the company with the “Bachelor” brand, and “The Simpsons” production studio.
The series has been viewed more than 12 million times and has attracted more than 6 million viewers.
Brown previously worked at ESPN.
Brown also has been involved in producing the “HBO’s ‘True Life,'” a scripted drama series.
