Fans of Steve Harvey's nationally syndicated morning radio show will enjoy "The Steve Harvey Project,” debuting on Centric on Monday (November 15).
Airing weeknights at 9 p.m., the hour-long show presents the best of the morning show, filmed daily with bits by fan favorites like Sister O’Dell, Eugene, the Pastors and others.
Like on the radio show, Harvey will be joined on the television show by his sidekick/comedian Nephew Tommy and supporting co-hosts Shirley Strawberry and Carla Ferrell. "The Steve Harvey Project" will also feature a singing contest, live studio guests, celebrity interviews, a dating segment called “Locate Your Love,” and the show’s signature relationship segment, “Strawberry Letter.”
"I am elated to present 'The Steve Harvey Project' on Centric, a network that is committed to providing programming that is innovative and new," said Harvey in a statement. "It’s going to be fun to show fans of the ‘Steve Harvey Morning Show’ all that goes on behind the scenes and how much their support inspires us every day."
Loretha Jones, President of Original Programming at BET Networks, added, "We are thrilled to have the multi-faceted Steve Harvey and the cast of 'The Steve Harvey Project' on Centric as they’ve built a tremendously successful radio show that will entertain and elevate our audience even more on screen.”
"We are excited to present Steve’s radio family with the opportunity to see him on television,” said Paxton Baker, Centric’s General Manager and Executive Vice President. “Steve’s voice has been heard and known throughout the radio waves for the past five years, and now we have the opportunity for listeners to not only hear him but see his show come to life on Centric."
The premiere of "The Steve Harvey Project" continues a busy fall for Harvey, coming on the heels of his debut in September hosting “Family Feud” and the much-anticipated release of his second book on relationships, "Straight Talk, No Chaser," which will hit shelves on December 7. Harvey will also grace the stage at Centric's Soul Train Awards to present the Legend Award to Ron Isley. The show tapes Nov. 10 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta and will air on Nov. 28 in a special simulcast on BET and Centric at 9 p.m.
