UPDATE: Aug. 25, 2017 – Faith Hill shares teaser video for Sept. 18 debut.
Faith Hill is adding yet another feather to her cap as executive producer of a new daytime talk and lifestyle series. Faith announced the project back in November 2015 and has now received the green light to move forward.
The still untitled project will feature previously announced host Kellie Pickler along with reporter/journalist Ben Aaron (husband of GMA meteorologist Ginger Zee) and will launch Sept. 18 on TV stations across the country. The series aims to cover a wide range of topics from cooking, gardening and entertaining to home design, beauty and fashion. The hosts will welcome experts from those various fields on each episode.
“We will bring a little bit of southern charm and inspiration to our viewers, alongside insights from top tastemakers and experts in many areas,” said Faith in a statement. “Kellie is very much southern while Ben is everything New York – complete opposites but together their chemistry is magic and our viewers are going to love them.”
The original program is created and executive produced by Faith Hill; co-founder of Happy Street Entertainment Lisa Erspamer; and president and CEO of Sandbox Entertainment Jason Owen, in partnership with The E.W. Scripps Company.
“Our vision for this show is to deliver the best of lifestyle content with two very talented and charismatic hosts,” said Lisa. “We are excited about combining an entertaining show with a unique shop-ability factor – viewers will be able to buy items they see on set while watching the show.”
Good Morning America’s Ginger Zee posted an Instagram picture of the co-hosting duo with a caption that reads, “@benaarontv has a new show! He will be co-hosting with the charming & gorgeous @kelliepickler … “Ben & Kellie” will air starting this fall in select cities around the country. #proudwife”
No word on whether Faith will step in front of the camera from time to time.
