Ice-T and Coco have landed their own daytime talk show, via a deal with Warner Bros.
Simply called Ice & Coco, the show will cover topics of the day, including Hollywood news and even puppy bits, and will feature celebrity guests, fun segments, games and open interviews.
A press release said the show would be presented in a “fun, authentic vibe” by the couple who will bring a “fresh perspective to the daily talk show format.”
Of their new talk show, Ice-T and Coco commented, “It’s a fun show with our own style of hip, married humor and honesty.”
The series will premiere Aug. 3 in a three-week test run on select Fox-owned stations in select martkets, including New York and L.A.
“We see this as another attempt to do something different — big personalities, new to the daypart,” said Frank Cicha, senior VP of programming at Fox. “Ice-T helped change popular culture. We’re trying to do the same thing for daytime.”
“We are thrilled to continue our ongoing relationship with Fox attempting to develop the next generation of successful talk shows. Ice & Coco has all the earmarks of a success,” added Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
