According to the announcement, the new show, "Trisha," will be hosted by Trisha Goddard, who is best known for her self-named talk show in the U.K.

Barry Wallach, president, NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution, said in a statement, "Over the past several seasons of appearing as a guest host and conflict-resolution expert on ‘Maury,’ Trisha has proven, time and again, that her brand of talk resonates with viewers. Trisha is the next hit from our experienced production team who are the leaders of syndicated drama-based talk shows and who have made ‘Maury’ the #1 talk show with Adults 18-49."

The announcement adds, "The new talk show will be produced at the Stamford Media Center by the experienced production team behind several long-running and successful talk shows including ‘The Jerry Springer Show,’ ‘The Steve Wilkos Show’ and ‘Maury.’ "
