The Queen Latifah Show returns with an all new season on Monday, September 15 and an expanded platform to include several season-long initiatives designed to spark forward momentum in the lives of her guests.
“This show is truly the embodiment of my journey,” says Queen. “Nothing makes me happier than to have the opportunity to share my experience with others and give people a chance to realize their dreams. For those viewers who have been with us from the beginning and those who may be tuning in for the first time, season two of The Queen Latifah Show is going to deliver some great surprises and a whole lot of feel-good fun.”
Reese Witherspoon will be the season’s first guest to discuss her role in the upcoming film The Good Lie, about an American woman whose life was forever changed when she befriended three refugees who were among the Lost Boys of Sudan. The film’s story is an ideal example of someone taking their life “One Step Further” and to that end, Reese and Queen will together introduce this season-long initiative with a big surprise for a deserving guest.
“One Step Further” will help viewers to discover possibilities for their lives they never imagined and provide them with opportunities they may not have otherwise.
Throughout the rest of week one, Latifah welcomes Goldie Hawn, The Muppets and Kristen Bell. She’s also bringing back iconic TV games with a celebrity twist this season playing The Dating Game with Toni Braxton and taking on Kristin Bell in a round of Pyramid, complete with host John Davidson, with more to come.
Plus, Queen delivers a surprise to Little League pitching phenom Mo’ne Davis, the Golden Sisters are back for a sky-diving adventure and Queen presents a YouTube Daddy/Daughter Dance-off.
The week of September 22, Latifah’s executive producer Jada Pinkett Smith will make her first in-studio appearance, and on Friday, September 26, Denzel Washington will visit his former co-star for the first time to promote his new film The Equalizer.
Other new features on the show this season include “Queen Screen,” an interactive surprise that allows Latifah to pop up where she is least expected with great prizes for unsuspecting folks and “The High Note,” a recurring segment to wrap up the show during which Latifah, a celebrity guest and/or members of the studio audience share good news, big or small to send the viewers off with a smile.
The series will also feature Latifah’s comedic commentary and parodies of pop-culture events and happenings.
