Queen Latifah is to host her own syndicated talk show in the U.S.
The rapper/singer and actress has teamed with Overbrook Entertainment bosses Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and Sony Pictures Television to produce a new daytime show.

Overbrook’s spokesman Miguel Melendez tells WENN, “We have known and admired Latifah for over 20 years, dating back to our music days, to her first television role on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and years later when she worked with Jada on the film Set It Off.

“This forum is the perfect place to showcase Latifah’s tremendous range of talents and unique ability to connect and inspire people.”

The new show is being developed for late 2013.

Latifah and her Flavor Unit Entertainment partner Shakim Compere will co-produce the project.
