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.
Tentatively-titled “#JustKeke“, the network has ordered an initial 4-week run, starting on June 30, airing 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 & peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, & the fans responded so positively! I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, & the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us.”
