Keke Palmer is set to make talk show history this summer with the debut of her new daily BET show tentatively titled, “The Keke Palmer Project.”
According to a press release provided by BET and Telepictures, the 20-year-old actress will target millennial viewers as she cover an array of topics and issues ranging from social, pop culture, fashion sex, and more. Which makes her the youngest talk show host in television history.
In addition to etching her name into the record books, the four-week test run in July is also produced by Judge Greg Mathis who was instrumental in establishing the relationship between Palmer and Telepictures.
Palmer’s passion for discussing various issues via social media is one of the many reasons why she has decided to venture into daytime television. “I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,” she noted in the press release. “If I am dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, and the fans responded so positively!”
“I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, and the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us.”
