Ken Jeong Daytime Talk Show in the Works

Ken Jeong is developing a daytime talk show!

He will also co-executive produce the show, which is being developed and produced by Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury and seeks to debut in 2024, Variety reported.

Jeong rose to fame in the TV series Community among other roles.

“Ken is one of a handful of people in the world who has what it takes to succeed as a talk show host and we are excited to be in business with him,” Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein said in a statement to Variety.

“Audiences connect with Ken on many levels – not only because is he so talented, entertaining and unapologetically hilarious but their sense that he is sincere, compassionate, fearless, friendly, just genuinely nice – all essential ingredients that make for long-term success as a talk show host. He is also a talent capable of conquering any time period with his mix of comedy, Hollywood celebrity friends and ability to bring viewers.”

Jeong, the son of South Korean immigrant parents, has spoken out against anti-Asian hate. He donated $50,000 to the families of victims who were killed in the shootings at three Atlanta-area spas in 2021.
