Nick Cannon’s upcoming daytime talk show is officially coming to our television screens this fall.
According to Variety, Cannon’s Ncredible Entertainment has teamed up with Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury to produce the comedic talk show “Nick Cannon” which will feature pop culture coverage and interviews from celebrities.
“It’s been thrilling going through this process, and to see the widespread support that the show has received and the milestones we’ve achieved is mind-blowing,” Cannon said in a statement. “We’re gearing up to deliver a must-see show and I’m looking forward to coming to you on your TV this fall.”
“Nick Cannon” is set for a September 21 premiere. The show has been picked up by FOX, CBS, Cox, CW Plus, Tegna, Meredith, Sinclair, Nexstar and Hearst.
“Clearances are climbing because our great station partners are hungry for a rising, versatile and dynamic talent like Nick. His light-hearted style quickly wins over viewers and gives them a much-needed escape from the world,” said co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus. “We’ve been asked why we skipped doing test shows and explained there was no need. It’s obvious to anyone who watched Nick guest host for Wendy Williams last year how much he loves daytime talk and, based on the reaction of fans, how much they love him.”
Cannon is currently directing and producing the highly-anticipated documentary Strong Enemies: The Untold Case of Dr. Sebi, a film initially started by the late Nipsey Hussle. On the one-year anniversary of Hussle’s passing, Cannon dropped the trailer to the documentary on social media.
In the trailer, Cannon can be seen visiting Dr. Sebi’s village in Honduras. There are also clips of past Dr. Sebi interviews where he talks about curing multiple patients from AIDS. There are also appearances from Erykah Badu, Common, and Karen Civil. So far, there is no word on the official release date for the documentary.
Congratulations to Nick Cannon on his new daytime talk show!
