Last year, the show business phenomenon Drew Barrymore announced she will launching her very own day time talk show, The Drew Barrymore Show. The show is a total of one hour and focuses on bringing information, inspiration, and entertainment to the daytime audience this fall.

Barrymore will elevate, inspire, and entertain with segments that reflect her personal passions such as upbeat news, heartwarming human-interest stories, compelling lifestyle segments, celebrity guest interviews, and collective experiences for viewers.

Barrymore has been very popular in the film industry for movie hits such as 50 First Dates, Never Been Kissed, E.T., and Charlie’s Angels. With Covid-19 in the way of the premiere on September 14, Barrymore did not even consider postponing her first appearance. Instead, she saw this as a new opportunity.

According to Variety, before getting into the works of her new talk show, Barrymore’s friends and colleagues made sure she knew how competitive the talk show business is. There are a lot of other celebrity talk show hosts she may have to compete with and this pandemic has made things a bit more challenging. Barrymore and her team worked to figure out a way to make entertainment in new ways and to talk to the guest through our new world of zoom.

The guests for this week include Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, Adam Sandler, Reese Witherspoon, Billy Eichner, Jane Fonda, Gabrielle Union, Christian Siriano, Charlize Theron, Tyra Banks, and Billy Porter.

The show will have virtual audiences that force the producers of the show to get creative with how they go about things; giving the audience a collective experience. As Variety says, producers will fill the audience up with mothers who have the opportunity to be pulled into the front, where they will be interacting with Drew Barrymore on topics about parenthood.
