Karamo, which will be filmed in front of a studio audience, will tackle a wide range of topics including infidelity, race, parenthood and complex family dynamics.
“Growing up hosting a daytime talk show seemed unrealistic and unattainable, but it was my dream. I used to run home from school as a kid to watch icons like this, Sally, Donahue and Maury,” Brown said. “My biggest goal is to help and connect with people from all walks of life. As a black, gay first-generation immigrant man, the opportunities to achieve my goals seemed impossible. So I want to thank everyone involved for believing in me and trusting me to explore all of life’s ups and downs and celebrate with their audience. We are all on this journey together, so let’s start talking and growing.
Karamo is produced and distributed by NBCUniversal Syndication Studios and Stamford Media Center Productions, the same production team behind NBCU’s hit talk shows, including The Steve Wilkos Show, The Jerry Springer Show, Judge Jerry and Maury.
