Mister RuPaul Charles’ DAILY syndicated talk show will premiere on Fox this summer.
Titled the economic (& iconic) RuPaul, the project, produced by Telepictures, is one of THE high profile new syndicated hopefuls for a fall ’19 launch.
It will premiere on June 10 and air Monday through Friday on select Fox stations, including WNYW in New York and KTTV in LA.
Deadline says the show will be,
“Entertaining and heartfelt” featuring Charles’ modern take on the talk format. He will showcase his aspirational message with celebrity and newsmaker interviews, along with empowering everyday people to become their best selves. His sense of beauty, make-up and style will make the runway work for everyone.
“Now more than ever before we need a global voice that will help everyday people navigate this unique time in history,” said Charles. “Not only do I want to be a part of that conversation, I want to help facilitate it.”
Frank Cicha, EVP, Programming, FOX Television Stations said,
“Part of the appeal of doing limited series is the freedom it allows to try something really different. That’s this show.”
RuPaul will be executive produced by Jill Van Lokeren (Michelle Obama’s Becoming book tour, The Oprah Winfrey Show), and World of Wonder‘s Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato and Tom Campbell, and Telepictures, a unit of Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television.
The new show joins a number of new syndicated programs Fox picked up for trial runs over the past six months, including Jerry O’Connell‘s talk show and Breakthrough With Dr. Steve Perry.
Here’s the first look at RuPaul.
