Coming off the success of VH1’s “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story”, another Viacom network, BET, has tapped Keke Palmer to host her very own talk show aimed at millenials. Tentatively titled, “The Keke Palmer Project”, the daily talk show will do a four week initial run in July to see if her peers tune-in.
At age 20, Palmer will become the youngest talk show host in TV history. Her show will cover such topics as fashion, pop culture, social issues, sex, and will feature celebrity interviews, “on the street” bits and undercover segments. It 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.”
Telepictures is the production company behind the project and our favorite TV judge, Greg Mathis has signed on as the executive producer.
Major props to Keke and BET! We’ll be watching!
