Jennifer Hudson, an Academy Award winner, will have a talk show on Fox television stations, according to Variety.
The Jennifer Hudson Show will take over the time slot previously occupied by The Ellen DeGeneres Show. DeGeneres is in the final season of her show, which is in its 19th year and will conclude soon.
“I have experienced so much in my life,” Hudson said in a written statement on Wednesday. “I’ve seen the highest of the highs, the lowest of the lows, and just about everything in between, but as my mother always told me, ‘Once you think you’ve seen it all, just keep on living.’”
From the beginning — 20 years ago — people from all over the world have been a part of Hudson’s journey, and she was so excited to join them as they sat down and spoke about the things that inspire and move them all.
“I have always loved people, and I cannot wait to connect on a deeper level and let audiences see the different sides of who I am, the human being, in return,’’ she said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to do it alongside this incredible team. We’re about to have a lot of fun and shake things up a little bit!”
Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution will distribute The Jennifer Hudson Show, which will be produced in Los Angeles by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in collaboration with Telepictures.
