Osmond takes on talk

30 January 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

LAS VEGAS -- Marie Osmond is looking to return to daytime.

The singer-actress, who recently completed a stint on ABC's Dancing With the Stars, has joined up with Program Partners for an hourlong entertainment/lifestyle talk show targeted to launch in fall 2009.

Osmond, who hosted the late-'90s daytime talk show Donny & Marie with her brother, was at NATPE on Tuesday for the surprise announcement. Osmond said the new show, being called Marie, will focus on topics of interest to women.

"It will be a real feel-good show," she said. "I've been through a lot of things in life and have no problem talking about it. Women need a safe place where they can laugh, feel good and relate to (other women)."

Osmond said that she's more than willing to share her own experiences -- from her house burning to postpartum depression to going through the adoption process to divorce and being a single, working mom to eight kids.

Ritch Colbert, who founded Program Partners with Josh Raphaelson, said it was the right time to launch the show. »
