'The Real' daytime talk show on for fall '14
There’s a new daytime talk show that will join the likes of The Talk and The View this Fall 2014, and the panel’s all about keeping it real. After a test run for four weeks in the summer, Warner Bros. TV Distribution/Telepictures’ syndicated multicultural daytime talk show The Real will launch nationwide next fall with Fox TV Stations, EW has confirmed.
The Real — hosted by Tamera Mowry-Housley (Sister, Sister), Tamar Braxton (Braxton Family Values), Loni Love (comedian), Adrienne Bailon (Cheetah Girls), and Jeannie Mai (How Do I Look) and executive produced by Sally Ann Salsano — will also get a second window on BET. The format is similar to the The Wendy Williams Show, which also airs on Fox stations after a successful summer test run, and on BET.
“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,” Ken Warner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, said in a statement.
The show will air on 18 Fox-owned stations, including its affiliates in New York, L.A., and Chicago.
