Tyra Banks is heading back to daytime television with a new talk show that will be distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. The series will launch in 2015.
Banks will host the currently untitled series with a group of lifestyle experts who will discuss various topics of the day. According to Entertainment Weekly, the show will also include interviews with celebrities and experts on specific topics. Internet trendsetters will also be invited on.
“The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me,” Banks said in a statement Friday. “I’m excited to be partnering with Disney-ABC to usher in a new era of lifestyle, beauty and entertainment that will inspire women to be the CEO of their lives via honesty, humor and the newest tips and tricks without being intimidating or precious.”
Deadline reports that this is the first project greenlit by Lisa Hackner, executive VP of Daytime & Syndicated programming at Disney-ABC. She previously worked with Banks at Telepictures, producing the Emmy-winning The Tyra Banks Show, which ran from 2005 to 2010.
In addition to being a former Victoria’s Secret model, Banks has established herself as the successful producer behind The CW’s America’s Next Top Model.
“To my fierce fam of future viewers: I can’t wait to shake up daytime TV together,” Banks said. “I have a lot of information to give and still lots to learn. Let’s do it!”
