According to Deadline, the new gig will make Keke the youngest talk show host in TV history. It will target millenials and cover topics like “fashion, pop culture, social issues, sex, and will feature celebrity interviews, “on the street” bits and undercover segments.”
The idea for the show was birthed from Keke’s interaction with fans on social media. “I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,” the actress revealed in a statement. “If I am dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, and the fans responded so positively! I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, and the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us.”
