Weinstein Television said it would work to develop a daytime talk show featuring Tamron Hall, who worked for many years as an anchor at MSNBC and on NBC’s Today show.Hall will co-create the program with Weinstein and serve as host and executive producer of the series. Weinstein said Barry Wallach, a former president of domestic TV distribution for NBC, would consult.
Weinstein and Hall will also collaborate to develop other non-scripted programming under the terms of their pact. The talk show is currently untitled, and is expected to focus on current events, human-interest stories and interviews with celebrities and news makers. The daily series is slated to be shot in front of a live studio audience.
Weinstein said the program “will fill the current void in daytime for viewers looking for a blend of heart, humor and information.”
Hall left NBC News after the NBCUniversal unit unveiled plans to replace the 9 a.m. hour of Today with a new morning program led by Megyn Kelly. That show is slated to launch in late September.
NBC News at the time said in a statement that it was “disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best.”
