We cannot get enough of Lauren Keyana “Keke” Palmer! The Illinois born and raised actress, singer, songwriter, dancer, fashion designer, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and activist, can now add TV host to that long list of titles!
Palmer burst onto the scene in 2004 when she gained her first film role in Barbershop 2: Back in Business, in which she played the niece of American rapper and actress Queen Latifah. Today, 20 year old Keke took to social media and posted a picture with the following caption: “God is so good. Always follow your dreams, own your Purpose! Embrace God’s Anointing” -Keke Palmer
BET Networks has picked up The Keke Palmer Project (working title), which has been picked up for an initial four-week run. The show, which is set to target millennials, will premiere in July, airing Mondays-Fridays. Judge Greg Mathis, whose long-time syndicated court show Judge Mathis is produced by Telepictures, is executive producing after being instrumental in bringing together the Warner Bros TV syndication division and Palmer.
Palmers show will cover: fashion, pop culture, social issues, sex, will feature celebrity interviews, “on the street” bits and undercover segments.
“I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,…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.” – Keke Palmer
The Keke Palmer Project, from Mathis Prods in association with Telepictures, will join The Wendy Williams Show, recently picked upThe Queen Latifah Show, and The Real, which is set to debut this fall. Keke Palmer will be the youngest TV Talk Show Host. Gotta love her!
