Los Angeles, CA – For the first time in nearly ten seasons on the air, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" will travel to the east coast. From October 29 through November 2, JKL will broadcast from the host's birthplace, Brooklyn, New York.
ABC and Kimmel announced today, while co- hosting "Live! With Kelly," that "JKL" in Brooklyn will originate from BAM - Brooklyn Academy of Music – the historic performing arts center which has been the cultural epicenter of Brooklyn since 1861.
This is the first JKL road trip since 2006, when the show broadcast from the famous GEM Theater in Detroit to record one of Kimmel's highest-rated weeks ever.
The citizens and sights of Brooklyn will be featured throughout the week, along with special guests, segments, and music acts. Select partners such as Hyundai have come on board to amp up the excitement for JKL in Brooklyn and will support the trip in a variety of ways leading up to and during the week.
JKL's week in Brooklyn coincides with the inaugural season of the newly-minted Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center. It will be an exciting week for the men, women, and children of New York's most colorful and populous borough.
