Goodbye feature films, hello the day!
last November, Variety reported that Hudson was launching a daytime series, The Jennifer Hudson Show, at Warner Bros. with her as host. Although not exactly a Ellen replacement (Ellen ended its 19-year run in May), Hudson’s new talk show will be taped on Ellen’s previous batch and be produced by many former Ellen Staff.
Despite its controversies, Ellen was one of the most watched talk shows for years, so fingers crossed that similar ratings and reviews will follow for The Jennifer Hudson Show. Plus, we know the powerhouse singer is going to put her own spin on daytime TV. She’s already promised fans that they’re going to have “quality, you’re going to have honesty, you’re going to have all my heart, and don’t forget the fun.” And this isn’t Hudson’s first stint on daytime television—she recently won an Emmy for her role as executive producer in the animated film, Baby Yaga.
