ABC picks up Tyra Banks-led daytime talk show 'The F.A.B.' for 2015
Tyra Banks’ foray back into daytime television is now permanent, as her show The F.A.B. has been picked up for broadcast in 2015.
ABC has signed on to launch The F.A.B., which stands for The Fun and the Beautiful, on ABC-owned stations in the fall of 2015. Banks is joined on the show by four co-hosts: YouTube star Leah Ashley, interior designer Lauren Makk, model and social media buff Chrissy Teigen, and Joe Zee, the editor-in-chief and executive creative officer of Yahoo Fashion.
Banks serves as executive producer in addition to her hosting duties, which will task her with moderating the panel of lifestyle experts in addition to guest panelists. The show was originally announced in May of 2014.
While Banks may have the longest track record in daytime talk shows, her co-hosts are no strangers to television. Makk appeared as a designer on Trading Spaces, while Teigen has contributed to The View and The Chew, and Zee have both made several appearances on Entertainment Tonight. And though Ashley has not appeared on a talk show, her lifestyle blog, appropriately titled A Fab Life, includes a number of video series.
The F.A.B. will be Banks’ first syndicated talk show since The Tyra Banks Show, which wrapped up in 2010, though she remains busy with America’s Next Top Model, which is currently in its 21st season.
