Drew Barrymore’s daytime talk show gets series order
It’s official: Drew Barrymore will host a daytime talk show slated to premiere in fall 2020.
CBS Television Distribution, which will produce the syndicated series, announced the show’s official order on Thursday. Reports of Barrymore’s foray into daytime television have been circulating since filming the show’s pilot in August.
“It’s beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show,” Barrymore said via statement. “I am truly thrilled and honored to create this show with CBS.”
Although she is best known for her long film career, which includes roles in HEY, The Wedding Singer and 50 first dates, Barrymore also has some notable TV credits on his resume. She starred and produced Netflix Santa Clarita diet, which ended its final season earlier this year. She also voiced Brian’s girlfriend, Jillian, on Fox’s family guy for many years, and she recently served as a judge on The best in the world talent show series on CBS.
Barrymore will also produce his chatfest, with Santa Clarita dietis Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell.
“Drew is a big star and a breath of fresh air – his show will energize any station’s lineup,” Steve LoCascio, CBS Global Distribution Group chief operating and financial officer, said in a statement.
CBS-owned and operated stations, which include major markets like New York and Los Angeles, will air Barrymore’s series when it launches.
