Faith Hill and Kellie Pickler’s Talk Show Coming in September
The daytime TV talk show that Faith Hill and Kellie Pickler have been working on officially has a distribution plan and a premiere date! The currently unnamed show is scheduled to begin airing in September.
Hill and Pickler's talk show will be hosted by Pickler and journalist Ben Aaron, Music Row reports, with Hill serving as one of the show's executive producers. Her fellow executive producers will be former Oprah Winfrey Show co-executive producer Lisa Erspamer and Jason Owen, Hill's manager.
The show is being filmed in Nashville, and will cover topics such as cooking, entertainment, home decor, gardening, beauty and fashion. In November, Pickler explained that the show would be "a lifestyle show, so it’s of course talking and interviewing people, but really shining a light on small businesses and special talents."
“We will bring a little bit of Southern charm and inspiration to our viewers, alongside insights from top tastemakers and experts in many areas,” Hill says (quote via Music Row). “Kellie is very much southern, while Ben is everything New York -- complete opposites, but together, their chemistry is magic, and our viewers are going to love them.”
Erspamer adds that the team's vision for the new talk show "is to deliver the best of lifestyle content with two very talented and charismatic hosts.” She also explains that viewers will be able to shop the items featured on the show while watching, but did not elaborate on how that will work.
Although Hill has acted in movies and TV shows, such as The Stepford Wives and Touched By an Angel, this show will be her first time acting as an executive producer. Pickler, meanwhile, has her own CMT reality TV show, I Love Kellie Pickler.
Hill, Pickler and company's talk show is scheduled to premiere on Sept. 18. It will air in 20 Scripps TV markets and be syndicated nationwide through Disney / ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution
