As if there aren’t enough talk shows already … but we will have a new queen of daytime next year. Sort of.
Queen Latifah will host a new daytime talk show slated for fall 2013, according to Deadline.
Latifah, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are among the co-producers, since the project is coming from Smith and James Lassiter’s Overbrook Entertainment.
“We are excited to join forces with Latifah and as well as Sony Pictures TV on this new venture,” executive producer Miguel Melendez said to Deadline. “This forum is the perfect place to showcase Latifah’s tremendous range of talents & unique ability to connect & inspire people.”
This won’t be her first foray into the talk show arena either. She first hosted the syndicated program “The Queen Latifah Show” in 1999, which ran for two seasons.
