At age 20, KeKe Palmer will be the youngest talk show host in TV history. BET networks and Telepictures have joined forces to debut a daily talk show, “The KeKe Palmer Project.” The show will be an hour long and Palmer is set to have discussion topics to include: social issues, sex, celebrity interviews, undercover segments, ‘on the street’ bits, and fashion.
The show joins a long running list of daily talk show hosts and shows to include, “The Wendy Williams Show” and recently acquired “The Queen Latifah Show” on the network.
Judge Greg Mathis (Judge Mathis) will exec- produce the series through his production company, Mathis Productions. The show stems from Palmer’s interaction with fans on social media.
“I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,” she 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.”
KeKe burst onto the scene at age 12 when she played the title role in the 2006 movie Akeelah and the Bee. She went on to top line her own series, Nickelodeon comedy True Jackson, VP. Not one to sit still, the ‘busy bee” Palmer is also starring in the upcoming horror film “Animal,” which is being produced by Drew Barrymore, she has an six-episode arc on Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” and is featured in the independent films “Brotherly Love,” and “Imperial Dreams,” which premiered this year at Sundance.
The show will have an initial four-week run, premiering in July, airing Monday-Fridays.
