An Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actress will bring her star power to the talk show game with a new syndicated daytime show. CBS Television Distribution announced plans for a fall 2020 launch for a show built around Drew Barrymore.
Barrymore, who recently wrapped her run as star and executive producer of the Netflix comedy series “Santa Clarita Diet,” is an Emmy nominee for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie for the 2009 production “Grey Gardens,” for which she won a Golden Globe. She’s also nominated for an Emmy as a producer on the 2000 Outstanding Animated Program nominee “Olive, the Other Reindeer.”
In a press release, Barrymore said: “It is beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show. I’m truly thrilled and honored to be creating this show with CBS.”
In addition to Barrymore, the untitled show will be executive produced by Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell.
The show has already been picked up by the CBS Television Stations, which account for 38% of the U.S. market.
