Queen Latifah is heading back to daytime television and we have a sneak peak at her new series inside! Watch the trailer and see the ladies of "The Real" discussing Paula Deen inside....
Queen Latifah is ready to jump back into daytime television with "The Queen Latifah Show," which is set to debut this fall on September 16.
Produced Overbrook Entertainment‘s Jada Pinkett-Smith, Queen Latifah spoke about her return to the competitive field of daytime television with the Real Style Network saying,
““I think the most important thing about the Queen Latifah Show is Queen Latifah and me bringing my perspective and style to it. I watch TV. I am a TV watcher. I come from a TV watching family. I watch a lot of the talk shows. I watch Ellen. I watch Maury. I watch Fallon. I watch TV. I know what I like. I want to create things that I like… I tend to live real life and I like to see some of that reflected on television. In my life experience, I relate to a lot of different kinds of people. If I can get into and entertained by it, then there are a lot of other people who can be entertained by it. I think the most important thing is for me to feel good about what we are doing.”
And when fans tune in, they'll see a high-tech set designed by rocker Lenny Kravitz and his Kravitz Design Inc. Nice! Lenny talked about designing the set with RSN saying,
“It’s a thrill to be designing the set for The Queen Latifah Show. This is the first time Kravitz Design has created an environment for television, which makes it a very exciting project for us. The set reflects Latifah’s personality and spirit and will be an inviting, comfortable space for her guests, studio audience and viewers. I never thought of designing for television but I suppose growing up in a TV studio watching my mother has come full circle.”
The award-winning actress chimed in, “Lenny is not only an incredible musician but an incredible designer, and I almost can’t believe he is designing the set for my show. I can’t wait for people to see it.”
Watch the sneak peek here and be sure to tune in on September 16.
