“It’s my time,” says Sherri Shepherd in the promo for her new daytime talk show Sherri.
Shepherd launched the video this weekend on social media. Wearing an asymmetrical yellow dress and sitting on a gray sofa, she says the new day program is a dream come true.
“It’s been my life’s dream to have my own show and it’s finally coming true,” the former co-host of View shares.

The actress and comedian tells fans she’s been invited for the official kickoff and trip to bring the series to television. “I want you to join me every step of the way on this journey that I take you on, backstage, on the road, in the studio, at rehearsals, interviews and so much more.”
Sherri is produced and distributed by Debmar-Mercury. As previously reported, the show will take over the timeslot previously held on Fox-owned TV stations in The Wendy Williams Show.
Wendy’s longtime showrunner David Perler will serve as executive producer alongside Shepherd and his producing partner Jawn Murray, according to Debmar-Mercury.
The Wendy The show was officially canceled earlier this year after its current season amid Williams’ ongoing health issues. Since Season 13 of the daytime staple premiered Oct. 18, 2021, Williams has never made a single on-air appearance.

The season’s original premiere date was repeatedly pushed back due to Williams contracting a breakthrough case of COVID-19 and complications from his previous diagnosis of Graves’ disease. Williams has also been engaged in a public battle with Wells Fargo for control of her finances.
Amid Williams’ struggles, several guest hosts appeared on her show, and Sherri Shepherd quickly became a fan favorite.
Sherri will debut this fall.
