Queen Latifah is set to host a new daytime talk show, which Flavor Unit, her company with Shakim Compere, will co-produce with Will Smith.
Queen Latifah and Smith have a lot in common — both started in hip-hop before producing and both have earned Oscar nominations. In fact, Queen’s first role was on NBC’s The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, which starred Smith, also in his first acting gig.
Queen Latifah first hosted a syndicated daytime talk show a decade ago. The Queen Latifah Show launched in 1999 and ran for 2 seasons. Flavor Unit made a strong entry into scripted series this year with the launch of 2 shows, Let’s Stay Together on BET and Single Ladies on VH1, both of which have been renewed for a second season!
She show is set to premiere in Fall 2013.
