With the Fox TV stations serving as its core station group, the new show, titled Sherri, has been approved in more than 97 percent of the nation. Along with other stations, the daily show will also be shown on Hearst, Sinclair, and Nexstar.
Sherri, a daytime talk show mainstay that comes from Lionsgate's Debmar-Mercury, is billed as a "daily dosage" of pop culture, comedy, dialogues, and a lot of celebrity and human interest interviews.
The Fox stations' time slots are now occupied by Sherri, which replaces The Wendy Williams Show, which aired its final episode in late spring after 13 seasons. The majority of the The Wendy Williams Show production staff will create Shepherd's show, which will also be broadcast from the same Chelsea, Manhattan, studios in New York City. On the final season of The Wendy Williams Show, Shepherd frequently served as a guest host, earning top ratings and strong praise from producers.
The executive producer and showrunner of Sherri, David Perler, has long worked on The Wendy Williams Show. The Rosie O'Donnell Show is among Perler's other credits. He said, "Sherri is a terrific fit for the daytime audience because she relates to people in such a genuine way. Sherri delivers a mix of fun, comedy, and helpful, genuine advice to viewers because she has worn so many hats over the years between her work, family, her fitness quest, and other successes.
Along with Perler and Jawn Murray, Perler's production partner, Shepherd serves as an executive producer on her program. Joelle Dawson, Fernita Wynn, and Suzanne Bass are the co-executive producers.
Shepherd said, "September 12th can't come soon enough." "It's a dream come true for me to host my own talk show, and I can't wait to take fans on this wonderful journey. A daily hour of entertainment escapism with lots of laughing, fun, and flirting as I express my opinion on pop culture, my new program will be something that is genuinely enjoyable and novel. And I'm ecstatic that such a fantastic senior production crew is assisting in bringing this enchantment to life.
One of the brand-new hosts entering the afternoon roster this autumn is Shepherd. On the Fox stations, Jennifer Hudson will also debut her own daytime chat show, which will be produced by the same people that work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"I didn't get to see a lot of black women on TV growing up, so to think that little brown girls can look up and see three black women on TV right now, it just blows my mind that Tamron [Hall], Jennifer [Hudson], and I are all hosting our own talk shows," Shepherd said in a Variety interview last month about the daytime landscape and the preview of her new show.
