Roku Dec. 1 announced that The Roku Channel is now the exclusive AVOD home for new daytime talk show, “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” starring Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony winner Jennifer Hudson.
The distribution deal between Roku and the show’s producer Warner Bros. Unscripted Television includes all previously aired episodes of the series, with all new episodes available to stream the day after their broadcast air.
Hudson, who has also appeared on “The Voice” as a celebrity judge, interviews celebrities, community heroes, viral sensations, and covers topical news and music.
“The authentic spirit that Jennifer brings to each episode of the series has already won over the hearts of audiences across the country,” Rob Holmes, VP of programming for Roku, said in a statement.
Produced in Los Angeles by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Telepictures and distributed in national syndication by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, “The Jennifer Hudson Show” is executive produced by Mary Connelly, Andy Lassner, Corey Palent, Jennifer Hudson, Lisa Kasteler Calio, Graehme Morphy, and Walter Williams III, with Shani Black as co-executive producer.
“The momentum [the show] has experienced since debuting [in syndication] only three months ago, speaks volumes about Jennifer’s ability to connect with audiences,” said David Decker, head of content licensing for Warner Bros. Discovery. “Adding J.Hud to the Roku Channel gives fans a whole new way to connect with her, which is what we are all about.”
