Keke Palmer is making serious moves in the industry! The actress, in connection with BET and Telepictures, will host her own TV show geared towards young adults this summer!
The series, tentatively called The Keke Palmer Project, was picked up for an initial four-week run, and will premiere in July, airing Mondays-Fridays. Judge Greg Mathis, whose own show Judge Mathis is produced by Telepictures, will be executive producer over the project, after being heavily involved in bringing this deal together.
The show will cover various topics, including fashion, pop culture, social issues, celebrity interviews, and more. The idea for the show, Keke acknowledged, stems from her interaction on social media with her fans. “I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,” she said. “If I am dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, and the fans responded so positively! I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, and the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us.”
When the show airs, Keke will become the youngest talk show host in TV history (currently, it’s Ricki Lake, who was 25 when she started her talk show).
Congrats to Keke! It’s very well deserved, and I’m definitely excited for it. Keke is a very positive and talented celeb, and I’m ready to see what she’s come up with for this show!
