Queen Latifah Gets a Daytime Talk Show!
We may have lost Oprah and next fall we'll find out what impact Katie Couric will have, but in 2013 daytime's getting a new Queen. According to Deadline, Queen Latifah will host a daytime talk show produced by her company Flavor Unit, with Will Smith and James Lassiter’s Overbrook Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television. According to the site,
Sony could’ve fast-tracked the talk show for a fall 2012 launch but opted to give it time to develop the way the studio did with The Dr. Oz Show, which has been the No. 1 syndicated daytime talk show in women 25-54 for the past three weeks. Sony TV does not have a contender for fall 2012 as the studio has been very selective with daytime projects, taking its time to find one that it feels it can throw its full support behind.
