"Given Queen Latifah's profile, stature and accomplishments, it was vital for us to find someone who complemented such a tremendous talent to helm this show," said Holly Jacobs, executive vice president, U.S. reality and syndicated programming, Sony Pictures Television. "We knew the diversity of Corin's experience in daytime and late night, her collaborative spirit, tremendous creative chops and passion for the medium made her a perfect match.

"She is the perfect choice to lead our production team with her unique brand of style, creativity and drive for success."

"Queen Latifah is that rare combination of a multi-talented performer and one of the warmest, most genuine women I've ever met. This show is the perfect platform to showcase her tremendous range of talents and unique ability to connect with and entertain people," said Corin Nelson, executive producer. "I'm thrilled to be working with the powerhouses of Flavor Unit, Overbrook and Sony Pictures Television, whose combined creative vision will truly help fuel the show."
