Jennifer Hudson Daytime Talk Show in Fall 2022 – The Hollywood Reporter
Jennifer Hudson joins the daytime game show.
The Oscar and Grammy winner will host a syndicated talk show slated to premiere in the fall. The Jennifer Hudson Show comes from Warner Bros., with Fox-owned stations set to air the show. Hearst and other station groups are also on board, giving show permission in more than 60% of the country so far.
“I’ve been through so much in my life; I’ve seen the highest of highs, the lowest of lows, and pretty much everything in between, but like my mom always told me, “Once you think you’ve seen it all, keep going. to live,” Hudson said. in a report. “People from all over the world have been part of my journey since the beginning – twenty years ago – and I am so ready to join their journey as we sit down and talk about the things that inspire and move us all. I’ve always loved people and look forward to connecting on a deeper level and allowing the audience to see the different sides of who I am, the human being, in return. And I couldn’t be more thrilled to do so alongside this incredible team. We’re going to have fun and shake things up a bit!
Hudson’s show is the second new talker to debut in the fall. Sherrifact Wendy Williams show Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury replacement and hosted by Sherri Shepherd, will also air on Fox stations.
The show will also keep Warner Bros. in the daytime space after its flagship speaker, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, ends after 19 seasons. The show represents a reunion of sorts for Hudson and Fox – where she broke the American Idol’s third season – and former unscripted network chief Mike Darnell, now chairman of Warner Bros. Unscripted Television.
“I knew Jennifer was a force to be reckoned with from the moment I met her nearly 20 years ago,” Darnell said. “From her Grammy-winning music career to her Oscar-winning acting career, Jennifer’s incredible talent, big heart and authenticity shines through in everything she does. I’m thrilled to work with her on this new role. He’s a natural person and I know the public will welcome him into their home every day.
Hudson will be the second former american idol performer to present a daytime show. Season one winner Kelly Clarkson is currently in her third season hosting an eponymous NBCUniversal show.
“Daytime has found its Dreamgirl,” said David Decker, executive vice president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. “We are thrilled to bring Jennifer Hudson to Fox, Hearst and all of our partner broadcast stations this fall.”
Frank Cicha, Executive Vice President of Programming for Fox Television Stations, added, “As the syndication business continues to undergo dramatic change, we need power players to reinvigorate talk shows and Jennifer Hudson is just that.”
The show will be recorded in Los Angeles; a creative team has yet to be named. Warner Bros. Unscripted Television produced in association with Telepictures; the distributor is Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
