JENNIFER HUDSON: Talk Show in the Works
Written by KingCnote on November 5, 2021
Several talk show hosts are angling to become the queen of daytime talk shows once Ellen DeGeneres departs in the spring.
Add Jennifer Hudson to that list. She could follow in the footsteps of Kelly Clarkson, who’s also an American Idol alum. J-Hud shot a test show on the Ellen stage with the help of Ellen’s producers. The pilot program is being shopped around Hollywood. Warner Bros. would syndicate the still unnamed show.
The studio interviewed 30 people as potential replacements for The Ellen Show. Insiders said that Jennifer Hudson became the “obvious choice.” Her show might take Kelly Clarkson’s timeslot when she shifts into Ellen’s hour. (Variety)
