Newly crowned EGOT Jennifer Hudson is officially headed to daytime television with "The Jennifer Hudson Show" in fall 2022.
The new talk show will debut on Sept. 12, Hudson’s 41st birthday, on Fox TV stations and will be produced by Warner Bros., the same studio behind “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Hudson will also serve as an executive producer on her show.
“I can’t believe I get to say this, but welcome to my show !!! ✨,” Hudson shared announcing the show alongside poster art.
President of Warner Bros. Unscripted Television, Mike Darnell, who first met Hudson when she was a contestant on the singing competition show American Idol, shared with Variety why he believes she will be an excellent talk show host.
“I knew who she was, and she’s still a Chicago native who is down to earth, authentic, easygoing and funny as hell,” Darnell said. “I knew we could translate that into a talk show.”
On June 12, Hudson cemented her EGOT status at the Tony Awards and became the youngest person to join the exclusive and illustrious group. Hudson received her Tony for Best Musical as one of the producers of A Strange Loop.
Hudson is the 17th person to achieve EGOT status and the second Black woman to become an EGOT winner, following Whoopi Goldberg.
