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.”
