Vivica A. Fox is heading back to the small screen. The actress and producer inked a deal with CBS Television Distribution to host a new syndicated talk show.
According to reports, the show will be called “Face The Truth” and is described as a “conflict-resolution yakker” in which guests reveal their problems to a panel of experts in related subjects who aim to provide constructive feedback. The studio audience will then get the chance to weigh in and vote on who’s at fault in the situation.
Panelists set to appear on the show include “Bar Rescue” host Jon Taffer, attorney and advocate Areva Martin, psychologist Dr. Judy Ho, and actress/life coach Rosie Mercado.
The show was created by producer Jay McGraw’s Stage 29 Productions, home of the syndicated series “The Doctors” and “DailyMailTV.” McGraw, Carla Pennington, Patricia Ciano, and Phil McGraw are executive producers.
“‘Face the Truth’ is a fresh addition to the television landscape,” said Jay McGraw, “We have an incredibly talented cast with strong opinions who deliver a show that is entertaining, informative and highly watchable.”
Apparently “Face the Truth” has been in development for some time and after NBCUniversal announced that it was canceling “Harry”, CBS saw an opportunity to capitalize on those viewers with a new fresh show.
The series is set to debut this fall and will air on 10 CBS-owned stations, including the Eye’s outlets in New York and Los Angeles.
Fox whose book “Every Day I’m Hustling” is slated for release in April, also has a slew of films releasing this year including Mr. Malevolent, Sharknado 6 and Caretakers.
