A New Talkshow For Queen Latifah

Yep she is trying it again. Almost 15 years later, Queen Latifah returns to daytime television with a new talk show, also titled The Queen Latifah Show, which is said to feature "a more mature, comfortable host with experience in front of and behind the camera, on stage, behind a mic and leading successful business and philanthropic endeavors."

Yeah if that line made you think its just another Oprah wannabe, you are not alone in that but Latifah has apparently laughed off those concerns.

This time around the rapper-actress is taking another shot at daytime success with help from producers Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, but she insists she's not aiming to be the next Oprah Winfrey.

In the late 1990s, Latifah hosted The Queen Latifah Show on daytime television. It ran from September 1999 to August 2001. 

Like may daytime programs, the talk show featured the then 30-year-old host interviewing celebrities and newsmakers while discussing topics of the day. 

Queen Latifah says her new daytime talk show is calling on A-list friends for support, including musicians Alicia Keys and Lenny Kravitz. 

Producer Corin Nelson said "The Queen Latifah Show" will be light on politics. 

But Latifah already has two big Washington guests in mind: During a White House visit, the actress and rapper extended an invitation to President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.

Though the show is still eight months away from its premiere episode, the program has already planted a flag online at the show's official website,QueenLatifah.com. 

The website features a countdown clock (259 days, 13 hours, 10 minutes and 53 seconds at this writing) and connections to Queen Latifah's world in social media. Fans can find her on Twitter at @IamQueenLatifah and Facebook.

Queen Latifah's New Talk Show will premiere in the United States on Sept 16th 2013
