YouTube Sensation Grace Helbig to Host a TV Talk Show Under E!
YouTube has once again helped a promising star rise to fame and achieve greater heights. This time, it’s YouTube’s “Daily Grace” host, Grace Helbig, as she is about to host her on TV show on E!
With her YouTube channel “It’s Grace,” Helbig garnered more than 2 million subscribers. And now, she is able to get a big break in hosting for a talk show right on TV. Reportedly called by E! Entertainment to fill in for Chelsea Handler after her “Chelsea Lately” talk show ended last August 2014, Helbig’s show will be featuring the latest trends on pop culture and interviews with some cool celebs.
Under the working title, “The Grace Helbig Project,” an interesting perk revealed about the show is that the celebrity interviews will be done in random locations, like inside Helbig’s own car or even in a grocery store. In addition to this, E! will also apply a weekly interactive engagement with the audience through social media like Instagram, Twitter and Vine.
“This show is a fresh take on the conventional talk show with a very unconventional host who has already captured an enormous fanbase of young viewers on the Web… [We] are excited to launch this forward-thinking talk show that speaks so perfectly to our audience and to the core of E!’s pop culture brand,” said E! Entertainment’s executive vice president Jeff Olde in a statement, as published on Variety.
With regards to her show, Helbig congratulated E! Entertainment for giving an Internet-obsessed introvert like her a chance to work on a talk show on TV instead of over the Internet.
Produced by Embassy Row, “The Grace Helbig Project” is due for viewing on your TV screens on April 2015. Alongside Helbig, the show will be having Amanda McPhillips, Ken Treusch and Michael Davies as its executive producers.
