Singer. Actress. Activist. Now she can add TV host to her resume. Keke Palmer is set to unveil her talk show, tentatively titled The Keke Palmer Project, on BET Networks starting this July. 

The show aims to target millennials by covering a variety of topics, including social issues, pop culture, fashion, sex and more.

Palmer has stated that her interaction with her fans on social media has helped influence her decision to pursue a talk show. “I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling. 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," she says.

The show will start production in Los Angeles this summer and will air Monday through Friday as part of its initial four-week run.
