CBS announced they are moving ahead with a syndicated daytime talk show hosted by Drew Barrymore, which is on track for a fall 2020 launch.
It’s the second syndicated daytime talk show that’s been announced, joining another headlined by Nick Cannon (which does not have announced station clearances yet).
“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,” said Peter Dunn, president, CBS TV Stations.
“Drew is a huge star and a breath of fresh air – her show will energize any station’s lineup,” said Steve LoCascio, chief operating and financial officer of CBS Global Distribution Group. “We’re looking forward to working with Peter Dunn and the CBS Television Stations group to launch this premium show in fall 2020.”
“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.”
