*Fox TV will engage in the trail run of a new syndicated Summer talk show starring actress-singer Tamera Mowry (“Tia & Tamera”), singer Tamar Braxton (“Braxton Family Values”), singer-actress Adrienne Bailon (“The Cheetah Girls”), TV personality Jeannie Mai (“How Do I Look?”) and comedian Loni Love.
The show, produced by Telepictures, is eyeing a July 8 launch. Titled “The Real,” the talker is said to be inspired by “The View” (ABC) and “The Talk” (CBS), but with a younger and entirely ethnic panel (all five hosts are under 40).
Specific markets (cities) and time periods were not available as of this posting, out but Telepictures, the show’s producers, is looking at a launch date of July 8.
We presume Tamar will have had her baby by then
With “The Real,” Telepictures is hoping to mimic the success of another their other syndicated talk show, “Bethenny,” which had a favorable summer run on Fox stations in 2012 before getting a nationwide launch this fall.
For the Fox stations, this is the second talk show that is being given a trial run this summer, along with Twentieth’s “Kris,” hosted by Kris Jenner, which premieres July 15.
