“The show was a huge success, and the two were discussing future opportunities,” Hope Hicks said.
Sources close to Levin told the paper that he was speaking with the president about another possible sit-down interview for his Fox News series “Objectified.” The series is expected to debut in September and will be a show that interviews celebrities who explain and talk about their most memorable items in their homes.
He also reportedly is interested in getting New England Patriots QB Tom Brady on the show and had sought the president’s help to make it happen.
