The Truth About Drew Barrymore's New Talk Show

From child star to business mogul, Drew Barrymore has pretty much done it all, and now she is tacking on talk show host to her impressive resume. The Santa Clarita Diet star makes her daytime TV debut on September 14 with the premiere of The Drew Barrymore Show, and it seems like a natural role for Hollywood's favorite flower child (via Today and Good Housekeeping). If her refreshingly honest Instagram posts, which vary in topics from her struggles with weight issues to her favorite skin care products, are a glimpse into what she will bring to her hour-long program this fall, CBS likely has a hit on their hands (via ABC7NY). 

In a recent interview with People, Barrymore described her eagerness to explore this new chapter in her professional career, and the fact that she's most excited "to be in a job where I don't have to play a character. I just get to be myself." 

Drew Barrymore promises to bring her life experiences to her new talk show

When it comes to her interviewing style and the show's format, Barrymore, who is also executive producer on the show, promises there will be no "mundane questions" and conversations. She told Entertainment Tonight, "I think it is really weird when people choose to do a profession but you can't know anything about me. It's like, well, you took the wrong job, it is fair game. Most people want to present their heart and humor, the same thing on this show." She promises to hold herself to the same standard, finding what she calls, "that perfect line [of] what is TMI (via People)."

Barrymore plans to incorporate her life experiences into the show, and after more than 40 years in the public eye, she has plenty of insight. In her own words, per the show's website, Barrymore writes, "From news to pop culture, human interest to comedy — we can have those amazing discussions that we need to have in order to grow! I love exploring everything and finding our way to beauty and wisdom, as well as to the heart and humor in life." There's no denying that with the 45-year-old star at the helm, The Drew Barrymore Show will be a joyful hour of TV that promises to "celebrate life" with honesty and humor (via CNN).
