New Talk Show Gets Green Light

May 7, 2018  •  Post A Comment

AMC announced Monday that it has greenlighted a new talk show that will be a companion to the network’s original series “Dietland.” The new show is “Unapologetic with Aisha Tyler.”

“Unlike a conventional after show confined to the companion series itself, ‘Unapologetic’ will feature Tyler leading a topical discussion around the broader, female-centric issues and themes that ‘Dietland’ explores,” the network said in the announcement. “Tyler will be talking with celebrity fans, series actors and producers, as well as relevant journalists, writers, comedians and other tastemakers. Embassy Row’s Michael Davies and Amanda McPhillips serve as executive producers.”

Said Tyler: “The issues of identity, sexuality, body image and self-actualization raised in ‘Dietland’ are more urgent than ever. Our dynamic, rapidly evolving cultural climate demands a frank, no-holds-barred exchange about the ideas and questions raised by the book and series, and the real-world events and issues women face every day. I’m looking forward to expanding the #metoo conversation in funny, honest and engaging ways. It’s about tim.”

The new series will air on Mondays starting June 4, immediately following new episodes of “Dietland.”
