After nearly three months of uncertainty, Fox has officially announced their plans to pick up Warner Bros. daytime talk show, The Real. One of the show’s hosts, Tamar Braxton, quickly took to Twitter to announce the good news.
According to Deadline, the pick-up comes with a two-year deal that will include nationwide syndication with Fox TV stations. A second showing of the daytime talk program will also air on BET in the evenings, following a format similar to that of The Wendy Show.
“This summer, the daytime landscape in seven Fox markets was dramatically altered when the women of The Real exploded on to the air. ‘The Real’ brought viewers a unique combination of elements that were missing from daytime, a real, multi-cultural conversation about issues that women of all ages are talking about. Daytime viewers from across the nation tuned in everyday to share in the fun, authentic, energetic and wonderfully outrageous hour that is The Real experience. We are very excited to be bring this distinctive unique series to stations for the Fall of 14,” said Ken Werner, president, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution in an issued statement.
This great news, especially after the ladies made such an emotional exit over the summer.
