Beginning next fall, the actress, producer and entrepreneur will host her own syndicated daytime talk show from CBS Television Distribution.
“It is beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show,” Barrymore said in a release. “I’m truly thrilled and honored to be creating this show with CBS.”
Barrymore, whose acting career has spanned four decades, jumps into daytime on the heels of the conclusion of her Netflix series, “Santa Clarita Diet,” on which she also served as an executive producer.
With her new venture, Barrymore joins singer Kelly Clarkson as another contemporary performer with name recognition aiming to inject star power into daytime.
Barrymore’s show, which does not yet have a title, will be executive produced by Barrymore, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell.
