Disney-ABC Has Tyra Banks Talker In Works
Disney-ABC is developing a talk show with Tyra Banks for fall 2015, the company confirmed today.
The syndicator, whose first-run talk show Katie will end its run next month, is looking to replace that show in fall 2015. This year, in its place, ABC stations will air shows such as Disney-ABC game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
"Tyra is truly unique in that she is both aspirational and extremely relatable to women of all ages," added Lisa Hackner, EVP of daytime and syndicated programming at ABC Entertainment Group, in a statement. “With an extraordinary social media following and legions of fans built over her years on television, Tyra is more relevant than ever. She is the ideal personality to infuse lifestyle content with fresh energy, humor, and the practical information the daytime audience craves.”
