Whoopi Goldberg Developing New Show
Whoopi Goldberg is developing a variety show for Nick Jr., the network announced at Friday’s Television Critics Association Summer 2013 press tour.
As part of Nick Jr.’s late night programming block targeting mothers, Goldberg has signed on to executive produce “Lounge,” a late night series. The comedic program, which sounds a bit like an extended makeover segment, will include honest conversations between everyday moms who are pampered and given the opportunity to fulfill their dreams. The programming block, called NickMom, will air from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
The announcement comes amid gossip reports that Goldberg is allegedly unenthused with “View” co-host and executive producer, Barbara Walters. Goldberg has vehemently denied the reports, and even called the New York Daily News to ask, “Who the f–k told you this?”
