Tyra Banks Panel Talk Show To Launch On ABC In 2015

According to Deadline, The F.A.B. (Fun and Beautiful), a Disney-ABC syndicated lifestyle show hosted by Tyra Banks, has been cleared on the ABC owned stations for a fall 2015 launch. The ABC stations, which represent 23% of the U.S. household, have been airing local programming and acquired shows in an hour that was taken up by Katie Couric’s talk show for the last two seasons. Banks is joined on the show by social media buff and foodie Chrissy Teigen, fashion guru Joe Zee, interior design professional Lauren Makk, and do-it-yourself YouTuber Leah Ashley as co-hosts.  Banks, who also serves as executive producer, will moderate the panel of diverse lifestyle experts. THE F.A.B also will welcome celebrities, Internet influencers, experts and everyday people and tackle topics ranging from fashion and beauty to food and design to doing it yourself and even starting a business.
This marks the first major launch for Lisa Hackner since she joined as EVP, Daytime & Syndicated Programming, ABC Entertainment Group.“At 40, Tyra has never been more relevant than she is today and her massive and growing digital footprint exemplifies her connection with women of all ages,” Hackner said. “Tyra has curated a fresh and authentic panel of co-hosts that is diverse in expertise, digitally connected and also share a magical chemistry.” The talk show will broadcast from Los Angeles and Tyra Banks will serve as executive producer. It will be produced by Disney-ABC’s Summerdale Productions and distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television.
