Steve Harvey’s new daytime talk show, which has been picked up in 95% of the U.S., has settled on an executive producer and a premiere date. Variety reports that the new show, “Steve,” will bow Sept. 5, with the NBC-owned stations and other top station groups on board.
Harvey already hosts the daytime talker “Steve Harvey,” which tapes in Chicago, Variety notes. The new show will tape in Los Angeles, and will be executive produced by daytime veteran Shane Farley.
“In November, Harvey set a sew deal with NBCUniversal and IMG to launch a syndicated daytime talk show that would give him a sizable ownership stake and control over the production,” Variety reports. “Harvey has spent five seasons as the host of an eponymous daytime talk show produced by Endemol Shine North America and distributed by NBCUniversal Domestic Television.”
The new show is also distributed by NBCUniversal.
Harvey is quoted in the story saying: “As I embark on this new adventure, I’m excited to explore everything Los Angeles has to offer for this new show. ‘Steve’ is going to be different than my current daytime show. The new location will allow me to welcome more celebrity guests and more importantly let me do what I enjoy doing best, being funny!”
