An upcoming daytime talk show brought aboard a new co-executive producer and supervising producer, with Talia Parkinson-Jones and Andrew Scher joining “Tamron Hall.”

The show, which will broadcast from New York, will premiere in national syndication on Monday, Sept. 9.

William Burton, senior vice president of Daytime, Sports and Syndicated Development/Production for ABC Entertainment, announced the hiring of award-winning daytime talk producer Parkinson-Jones as co-executive producer and Scher as supervising producer.

“Talia Parkinson-Jones is a three-time Emmy Award-winning producer, showrunner and casting director,” the announcement notes. “Prior to joining ‘Tamron Hall,’ she spent 10 seasons at ‘The Wendy Williams Show,’ most recently as co-executive producer. Parkinson-Jones began her career in television working for the Oxygen network, and her producing work has aired on major networks including ABC, NBC, FOX MTV, BET and E!. She also served as casting director for Discovery Channel’s hit game show ‘Cash Cab.'”

The announcement adds: “Andrew Scher was part of the original executive producer team that developed and launched the Emmy Award-winning daytime talk show ‘The Doctors.’ Before spending five seasons on that show, he was a senior producer at ‘Dr. Phil.’ In addition, Scher served as supervising producer of ‘The John Walsh Show.’ Throughout his career, he also held senior producer roles at ‘The Queen Latifah Show’ and ‘The Ricki Lake Show.'”

Said Burton: “Talia and Andrew are exceptionally talented production professionals, and we are beyond thrilled to welcome them to the ‘Tamron Hall’ senior production team. Talia is a highly regarded trailblazer in the daytime space, and her vision combined with Andrew’s impressive track record will help position the show for the best possible success.”

“Tamron Hall” will be executive produced by Bill Geddie and Tamron Hall and is distributed in national syndication by Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International, the global content sales and distribution segment of The Walt Disney Company.

  1. Why am I seeing a repeat of the Katie Couric story here for Disney. The market is overcrowded as it is and Tarmon has been off broadcast for over two years. Lottsa Luck.
