Drew Barrymore officially has a new television project, and it’s a huge departure from anything she’s ever done before. CBS announced on Thursday that the actress, makeup mogul and mom-of-two will host a syndicated daytime talk show, set to launch in fall of 2020. Barrymore filmed a pilot for the talk show in August, and it was apparently strong enough to land her the full-time gig.
“It is beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show,” Barrymore said. “I’m truly thrilled and honored to be creating this show with CBS.”
Barrymore joins several other big names who have recently had daytime shows green lit. Former TODAY show anchor Tamron Hall has a new talk show with Disney/ABC that premiered last month. Kelly Clarkson is also headlining a talk show for NBCUniversal. Meredith Vieira is hosting a new game show, 25 Words or Less, for Fox Television Stations. And Jerry Springer will make his television return, this time in a court show titled Judge Jerry for NBCUniversal.
