A new entry in the daytime talk game got a big boost when the ABC O&O’s picked up the syndicated show, “The F-A-B,” featuring host Tyra Banks, for fall 2015, Variety reports.
“The deal gives the Disney-distributed strip a home in eight major markets, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago,” the story reports. “Banks will anchor a roundtable of lifestyle mavens. Banks’ co-hosts are now set: former model turned foodie Chrissy Teigen, fashion guru Joe Zee, interior designer Lauren Makk, and do-it-yourself YouTube personality Leah Ashley.”
The name of the show reportedly stands for “Fun and Beautiful.”
Rebecca Campbell, president of the ABC Owned Station Group said: “Tyra and her panel of lifestyle experts share a chemistry that is energetic and extremely entertaining.”
Clearance for the show has reached 23% of U.S. television households, the report notes.
