Queen Latifah will return to the talk show hosting scene. Miguel Melendez of Overbrook Entertainment — Will Smith‘s production company — confirmed the move in a statement today. “We have known and admired Latifah for over 20 years, dating back to our music days, and to her first television role,” it read in part.
The Grammy winner’s first talk show, “The Queen Latifah Show,” aired between 1999 and 2001. Overbrook and Latifah’s production company, Flavor Unit, will be the executive producers of the show. It’s set to debut in fall 2013; however, as of this writing, it hasn’t been picked up by a network.
