With greats such as Oprah Winfrey freeing up daytime talk TV, it looks like more and more celebs are opting for the big chair, take Queen Latifah and Wendy Williams for instance. But they aren’t the only ones, super model/media mogul Tyra Banks is set to return to daytime talk TV in 2015 with Disney-ABC.
Banks will serve as the executive producer and host of a currently untitled lifestyle show being broadcasted and nationally syndicated form Los Angeles. The series will feature the “smizing” originator along with a team of lifestyle experts tackling a wide range of topics from beauty to entrepreneurship.
“The show will motivate viewers to improve and enhance their lives by providing cutting edge guidance. Tyra will also welcome celebrities, Internet influencers, experts and everyday people to share their own knowledge across a wide-range of topics that are important to the daytime audience,” read the statement from Disney-ABC.
We’ve seen Tyra pretty much do it all, from Victoria Secret supermodel to attending the Harvard Business School. Banks’ previous daytime debut, The Tyra Banks Show featured an uninhibited Tyra able to make fun of herself at times and still capture a crowd with emotions. It’s been four years since the Emmy Award-winning show and Tyra is ready for her second run.
“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!” Banks said in the statement.
