Show Will Be Based On Best-Selling Books
Looks like Steve Harvey will be joining the ranks of Oprah and Tyra Banks when he starts hosting a daytime talk show.
From Hollywood Reporter:
The actor-comedian-author is developing what is being described as a “comedy show with talk show elements” with Endemol USA that would be distributed by NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution.
The show, intended for a fall 2012 launch in syndication, will be inspired by Harvey’s best-selling books, including Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, and syndicated radio program, Steve Harvey Morning Show.
Harvey, who also will executive produce with Rushion McDonald, is aiming to bring his comedic sensibility to the show, which will focus on relationship topics, including parenting, workplace, body issues, co-workers and more.
“Steve Harvey is a multi-talented entertainer, a best-selling author, host of a No. 1-rated radio program and a huge TV personality — Steve is a proven ratings winner in the day part, ” said Barry Wallach, president of NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution. “We are excited to work with Steve Harvey and the Endemol production team on this new talk show.”
