Victory Studios, where Extra is produced

Extra is an entertainment television news program covering events and celebrities which debuted on September 5, 1994 in syndication. It is produced at Victory Studios in Glendale, California by Telepictures Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television Distribution. From 1995-2003 it was distributed by Time-Telepictures Television a joint merger between Time Magazine and Telepictures. Extra also had a spinoff show called Celebrity Justice, which ran for only three seasons from 2002-2005.

It was announced on January 29, 2007 that Extra has been renewed through the 2011-2012 season. The staff of Extra also produced a Sunday night program for The CW called CW Now from September 2007 to February 2008, when it was cancelled; the show continues to produce interstitial segments for that network.

On July 28, 2008 it was announced that Mario Lopez would become solo host replacing current co-hosts Dayna Devon, who will become a correspondent, and Mark McGrath, who leaves the show to return to a music career.
