Sherri Shepherd Debuts The Trailer for Her New Talk Show

According to insiders, ‘Sherri’ promises to be a comedic take on pop culture and entertainment.

It is almost time for a new audience to check out the comedic stylings of Sherri Shepherd, as she has released the first trailer of her daytime talk show.

Titled Sherri, the former co-host of The View has excitedly premiered her promo video via Page Six and promises to take her viewers “on every step of this journey” from “behind the scenes [to] on the road [and] in the studio, [plus] so much more.”

“This is my time,” the 55-year-old declared of her show, titled “Sherri.”

“It is my lifelong dream to have my own show, and it is finally happening,” she added.

Debmar-Mercury, the production company behind The Wendy Williams Show, is producing Shepherd’s show, and it will replace Wendy Williams. She “stopped showing up to work” amid personal and health issues last summer.

Billed as a “comedic take on pop culture and entertainment,” Sherri will bridge the gap between celebrity interviews and in-depth stories with real people.

Her pop culture guru-producing partner, Jawn Murray, will serve as executive producer with David Perler, and she will inherit at least 80 percent of Williams’ old production crew.

“I can’t wait until I return to New York to host the show and merge everything I love… pop culture, talk, entertainment, and comedy,” Shepherd has previously said.

However, in the other corner of the daytime talk show space, Williams has rebuffed claims of her retirement from atop the mountaintop, saying that she’ll be returning to her eponymous show in the fall. Sources close to her production insist that she’s a wrap — at least for now.

One insider told us it’s “logistically impossible” for Williams to return now that Shepherd is taking over.

Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein have said, “We hope to be able to work with Wendy again in the future and continue to wish her a speedy and full recovery.”
