Kelly Clarkson isn’t the only celeb mama to land herself a talk show. Drew Barrymore recently revealed that she’s tackling the job of daytime host, too!
Barrymore reportedly filmed a pilot for the show, which will air on CBS Television stations nationally fall of 2020, last August. Judging by this new deal, it looks like the pilot went over well with the TV execs involved.
The actress told Variety, “It is beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show.” Barrymore also added, “I’m truly thrilled and honored to be creating this show with CBS.”
The soon-to-be daytime host isn’t the only one who’s excited about this new venture. Steve LoCascio, chief operating and financial officer of CBS Global Distribution Group said of Barrymore, “Drew is a huge star and a breath of fresh air—her show will energize any station’s lineup.” Peter Dunn, president of CBS Television Stations tells us that “We are very excited to be in business with Drew Barrymore and have our stations serve as the launch group for a show that is the brightest prospect I have seen in many years.”
While the network did announce a fall 2020 launch, as of now there’s no specific debut date for Barrymore’s daytime show.
