The daytime chat show "The Jennifer Hudson Show" will be hosted by singer-actress Jennifer Hudson.
Jennifer Hudson, a singer, program, and actress, is entering the daytime TV scene. The Jennifer Hudson Show will be a daytime discussion show hosted by the Grammy, Emmy, and Oscar-winning star.
According to People magazine, Hudson will star in her own one-hour daytime talk program starting in the autumn, which Warner Bros. Unscripted Television and Fox Television Stations announced on Wednesday.
Hudson, who is well known for her diverse talents, stated that she is eager for people to get to know her personally.
She stated in a statement, "I have gone through so much in my life; I've seen the highest of highs, the lowest of lows, and pretty much everything in between, but as my mother always taught me, "Once you think you've seen it all, just keep on living."
People from all around the world have supported me on my trip, which began 20 years ago, and Hudson said, "I'm so excited to join their journey as we sit down and talk about the things that inspire and move us all.
Added her, "I've always been a people person, and I can't wait to interact with people on a deeper level and let audiences see the various facets of who I am as a person. And I'm beyond excited to do it with this outstanding crew. Things are about to get exciting and a little bit shook up!"
Hudson's show is positioned to become Warner Bros. TV's next flagship daytime chat show once DeGeneres has said her final goodbye after a 19-season run, even if it isn't actually "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," which is ending this year.
Andy Lassner and Mary Connelly, executive producers of Ellen, will serve as the show's producers, according to Deadline. The pair taped a presentation on the Ellen stage as part of their pitch to station groups.
The Los Angeles-based daytime chat program hosted by Hudson will debut on Hearst Television in addition to Fox Television Stations and other station groups. In 2004, Hudson initially gained notoriety as a competitor on "American Idol." Even though she was unexpectedly removed during the Top 7 week, her career quickly began to take off. She portrayed Effie White in the 2006 movie version of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls. Her performance garnered her first Oscar nomination, and the following year, she won for Best Supporting Actress. Since then, Hudson has made several appearances in movies and television shows. In addition, she has several albums out and appeared on Broadway in "The Color Purple."
Most recently, Hudson played Aretha Franklin in the biopic "Respect," which helped her win the NAACP Image Award for best actress in a motion picture. At the ceremony in February, she also won the entertainer of the year prize.
