The daytime talk show space continues to get crowded (Tyra Banks most recently announced that she’ll be jumping back into that space via ABC), as Keke Palmer & BET are hoping to strike gold with a new talk show targeting so-called millenials – essentially those in her age group – which Palmer will of course host.
Titled “#JUSTKeke“, the network ordered an initial 4-week run, starting TODAY, June 30, and will air daily, Monday to Friday.
Judge Greg Mathis, apparently looking to expand his empire, will executive produce, while Telepictures is producing.
The 20-year-old Palmer will become the youngest talk show host in TV history, with “#JUSTKeke” besting the likes of Ricki Lake, who was 25 when she begun hosting her 1990’s daytime talk show, also aimed at her generation at the time.
Per the press announcement, “#JUSTKeke” will cover a variety of topics important to her target audience, as you’d expect, & will also include celebrity guests, & more.
“I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,” Palmer said. “If I am dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, and the fans responded so positively! I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, and the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us.”
