ABC is developing a new daytime talk show starring Mo’Nique. According to reports, the syndicated talk show could launch as soon as September 2014.
It is still unclear what format the show will take on — if Mo’Nique will focus on celebrity interviews, real-life stories or a combination of both. She has always been an open book, having spoken publicly about being molested as a child and having an open marriage with her husband.
Other talk shows in the works for next fall include Meredith Vieira and Marie Osmond. Kris Jenner also has yet to get the green light for her show with Fox. Fox also has a younger version of “The View” in the works called “The Real.”
Mo’Nique’s last talk show effort was a late-night series on BET called “The Mo’Nique Show,” which ran from 2009 to 2011.
