A talk show that made a failed attempt to gain traction in the crowded landscape of female-centric daytime chat has been canceled. Deadline reports that CBS Television Distribution pulled the plug on the Vivica A. Fox-hosted “Face the Truth” after one season.
“Led by Fox and a panel that included attorney and advocate Areva Martin, psychologist Dr. Judy Ho, actress, life coach and mom Rosie Mercado, and Judge Mary Chrzanowski, aka ‘Scary Mary,’ ‘Face the Truth,’ from Jay McGraw’s Stage 29 Productions, was described as having a unique take on talk by providing meaningful conflict with constructive resolution,” Deadline notes. “Each episode featured real people presenting their problems big and small to the panel in search of solutions.”
Jay McGraw, Carla Pennington, Patricia Ciano and Dr. Phil McGraw executive produced the series.
The report also notes that CBS Television distribution renewed “The Doctors” for a 12th season and “DailyMailTV” was picked up for a third season.
