Supermodel and TV mogul Tyra Banks has landed a deal for a new daytime talk show.
The 40-year-old executive producer and host of “America’s Next Top Model” has inked a deal with Disney-ABC for a new daily syndicated
lifestyle talk show starting in 2015.
The not-yet-titled show will have Banks leading a team of lifestyle experts who cover a range of topics from beauty and fashion to home and entertainment.
The series will also be a platform for empowerment and individual enterprise. A description of the show said it aims to help motivate viewers
to improve and enhance their lives by providing cutting-edge guidance.
Additionally, the new talk show will feature celebrity interviews, Internet influencers, experts and everyday people sharing knowledge of topics key to the daytime audience.
“The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me,” Banks said. “I’m excited to be partnering with Disney-ABC to usher in a new era of lifestyle, beauty and entertainment that will inspire women to be the CEO of their lives via honesty, humor and the newest tips and tricks without being intimidating or precious. To my fierce fam of future viewers: I can’t wait to shake up daytime TV together. I have a lot of information to give and still lots to learn. Let’s do it!”
This is Inglewood, Calif.-bred talent’s second talk show run. Banks previously hosted and produced “The Tyra Show” for Warner Bros. Television Distribution/Telepictures Productions and that show ran for five seasons from 2005 to 2010.
Banks follows Queen Latifah and Ricki Lake who both returned to daytime TV after previously hosting talk shows. While Lake’s second talk show was canceled in 2013 after one season, Latifah’s premiered in the fall of 2013 and has been renewed for a second season.
