TNT orders pilot for ‘Naked with Niecy Nash’

Posted by | Ray Cornelius 

TNT is ordering the pilot for its first late night talk show—Naked with Niecy Nash.

According to S&A, the CLAWS star will host the show and “provide her comedic take and dispense advice on issues involving love, sex, romance and relationships as she interacts with everyday people.”

The show will be executive produced by Sue Murphy, who served as the EP and showrunner for Chelsea Handler‘s Netflix show, Chelsea!

“I’m so excited to add my voice to the late-night landscape. Love is the thing we were created for, but it’s also the place we struggle the most… until now! This is going to be a fun and sexy ride! TNT is the perfect partner for me in this endeavor! Adding an experienced and amazing executive producer and showrunner like Sue Murphy to this mix was the cherry on top,” said Nash.

RC will keep you posted as this project continues to develop.

CONGRATS Niecy! The best is yet to come!!!!!

GPB’s ‘A Seat at the Table’ to debut 6/18 [PHOTOS]

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Renowned broadcast journalist and former Atlanta news anchor Monica Pearson is teaming up with journalist and author Denene Millner and entertainment attorney Christine White for a brand new talk show on Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) titled “A Seat the Table.” The series, which is inspired by Solange‘s Grammy-winning album of the same name, debuts on Sunday, June 18 at 6:30 p.m. EST.

“A Seat at the Table” is being described as “a weekly series that discusses the diverse experiences, perspectives and challenges of African-American women.” The trio will talk candidly about topics ranging from national news, family, kids, careers and medicine to sexuality, beauty, fashion and relationships. The “no filter” program will cut through the silence and engage viewers in a conversation that will be enlightening and entertaining.

I had a chance to meet the ladies this week during a private press luncheon at the GPB Studios where Pearson was excited about returning to television and viewers getting an opportunity to meet the “real” woman behind the camera.

“I came out of retirement to do this because I always had to keep my thoughts to myself. Now there were viewers who thought that I had shared my thoughts by the way I moved or raised my eyebrows but this gives me an opportunity for people to see me as more than a reader and more as a reporter, said Pearson, who left television in 2012 after being Atlanta’s first female and first minority news anchor.

Millner is an award-winning journalist and was been named by BlackVoices.com as one of the 40 Most Influential Black Female Writers. She was the co-writer for Steve Harvey‘s hugely popular Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man and wrote the novelization of the screenplay for both “Dreamgirls” and “Sparkle.”

White is a Spelman College graduate who has build a very successful career as an entertainment attorney and cultural economist. Passionate about activism and Black entrepreneurship, White co-founded the Influencer Coalition (icATL), a political organization composed of entertainment industry professionals in the state of Georgia.

‘T. D. Jakes’ Talk Show to air throughout U.S. in 2016!

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Kudos to Bishop T.D. Jakes!  His one-hour talk show T. D. Jakes has been given permission to air throughout the U.S. beginning in the fall of 2016.  The show tested extremely well with audiences during August and September and will most likely return the same in daytime programming slot.

According to S&A, the secular formatted program is being produced and distributed by TEGNA and will broadcast in over 29 different of the company’s major markets including Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas and Seattle.

As previously reported, T.D. Jakes is being described as “Dr. Phil meets Oprah Winfrey” and will cover a wide range of topics. This is also his second attempt at hosting a show. If you recall, he had a similar program on BET in 2013 titled, T.D. Jakes Presents: Mind, Body and Soul.  He has also appeared regularly on Oprah Winfrey’s Next Chapter and Oprah’s Life Class.

T.D. Jakes made headlines over the summer when former R&B Diva Angie Stone and her daughter Diamond appeared on the show to reconcile their differences. The two were involved in an altercation that resulted in the singer being arrested and jailed for knocking out her daughter’s teeth.

“It is indeed an honor for TDJ Entertainment to work with such a stellar slate of industry players like TEGNA Media, 44 Blue, EnLight and Scott Carlin whose belief in my ability to engage a broader audience with relevant and uplifting content is consistent with my years of experience at the intersections of the faith-based, entertainment and business worlds,” said Bishop Jakes in a statement. “This is an unprecedented opportunity to bring a new voice to a familiar platform. To say I am excited and challenged by this opportunity is an understatement.”

Stay tuned…

New Promo for ‘THE REAL’ debuting September 15 (VIDEO)

Posted by | Ray Cornelius 

A new promo has been released for Fox’s one-hour talk show, The Real.   The show airs nationwide this fall and features five bold, diverse and outspoken hosts — Tamar Braxton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon.

As previously reported, these women are all going through varied life experiences, including new motherhood, new marriages, dating or singledom, that relate to every woman’s own trials and tribulations. Unlike other talk shows, each of the five hosts is admittedly a “work in progress” and fearlessly invites the home audience into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion will turn the traditional talk show on its head.

Take a look at the first season preview below:

‘TYLER: The Tyler Perry Show’ is coming to OWN (VIDEO)

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Earlier this week, Tyler Perry posted the above photo on his Instagram account announcing the arrival of his new talk show, Tyler: The Tyler Perry Show,  with the following caption: “Look what I’m working on. Coming on next Tuesday after The Haves And The Have Nots, only on OWN.”

Last year, we reported that the famed director-actor-producer was working on a cartoon series and a talk show, which he described to the Huffington Post as a mashup  between Dr. Phil  and Andi Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live.

This new endeavor would be Perry’s fifth program on Oprah Winfrey’s network.  OWN already airs the hugely popular The Have and The Have Nots  and Love Thy Neighbor.  For Better or Worse  and the forthcomng Single Mom’s Club, which is based on the upcoming movie of the same name, round out the other two series.

No word yet on potential guests or show themes but like you, I will be glued to my television when the show airs Tuesday, Feb. 25.

In the meantime, check out a clip of Perry in action when he hosted a talk show “special” promoting Why Did I Get Married Too  featuring singer-actress, Janet Jackson.
