Music superstar and current American Idol judge, Harry Connick Jr. is getting his own syndicated daytime show in 2016.
According to Billboard, the show titled Harry will air on Fox-owned TV stations in 17 markets. It is currently in the process of being sold to other leading station groups across the country for its national syndication premiere next fall. Justin and Eric Stangel, Connick Jr and Ann Marie Wilkins will serve as executive producers.
This is what Connick Jr had to say about his new show:
I’m a lucky guy. I get to be a husband to a wonderful wife, a father to three incredible daughters, and an entertainer to the most amazing fans. And now, I’m honored to be able to put smiles on people’s faces on a daily basis. Working with the amazingly talented and hysterical Stangel Brothers is a dream come true. Harry will be an hour filled with fun, music and laughter. Fasten your seat belts — it’s gonna be one heck of a good time!
Harry will offer a wide-ranging mix of live musical performances, man-on-the-street interviews, stunts, parodies and audience participation.
