Details on 'Sherri':

Shepherd’s new talk show has been cleared in more than 97% of the country with Fox TV stations serving as its core station group. The show will also air daily on the Hearst, Sinclair, and Nexstar stations, among other station groups.

The talk show comes from Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, and is described as a “daily dose” of “pop culture, comedy, conversations and a plentiful supply of daytime talk staples, including celebrity and human interest interviews.”

'Sherri' will replace Williams' show, which just aired its final episodes, with 'Sherri' retaining much of the production team from the long-running talk show.

Longtime executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show, David Perler will serve as executive producer and showrunner of Sherri. Per Variety, Perler said in a statement, “Sherri is a great fit for the daytime audience because she relates to people in such a natural way. Having worn so many hats over the years between her career, motherhood, her fitness journey and other accomplishments, Sherri brings a mix of fun, laughter and valuable, authentic advice to viewers.”

Shepherd will serve as an executive producer on her new show, along with her producing partner, Jawn Murray.

She added, “September 12th can’t get here fast enough. Hosting my own talk show is a dream come true and I’m so excited to take viewers on this joyous journey. My new show will be something truly fun and fresh, a daily hour of entertainment escapism with plenty of laughter, fun and flirtiness as I give my take on pop culture. And I’m so glad to have such an awesome senior production team helping to make this magic a reality.”
