Kevin Smith Working on a Daytime Talk Show?

With Oprah gone, we need someone to fill the daily talk show void—enter Kevin Smith. The screenwriter and director may be done making movies but he’s hard at work developing a daily talk show.

According to Vulture, the director is in the process of developing a syndicated show that would fuse all of the traditional elements of talk shows with his own special Kevin Smith comedic touch.

A message Vulture intercepted describes the project in a bit more detail. It will be “a daily 30-minute entertainment talk show for syndication … The idea is a Regis and Kelly talk show at the opposite end of the day for the opposite kind of audience — the 12-34 demo. Kevin and his co-host will talk water-cooler topics at the top of the show, followed by a celebrity interview and a comedy segment from the field (a la The Daily Show). Each show will feature one celebrity interview.”
