BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Kimmel is among Donald Trump's late-night gadflies, while producer Mark Burnett showcased the future president on "The Apprentice." Yet the two are going into business together.
Kimmel and Burnett will produce a new ABC game show, "Generation Gap," described by the network as a comedy quiz show that brings family members together to compete as a team.
Asked about the apparent odd-couple pairing with Burnett, Kimmel downplayed the producer's role in Trump's election.
Observers have suggested that Burnett's "The Apprentice" helped shape public perception of Trump as a leader.
Kimmel said there is "no way" that Burnett had the foresight to imagine that Trump would go from reality TV host to president.
