EXCLUSIVE: Actress-singer Tamera Mowry has signed with CAA in all areas. Mowry, who was previously at UTA, is one of the hosts on Warner Bros’ syndicated daytime talker The Real, which is heading for a fall launch following a successful four-week summer test on seven Fox-owned stations. Mowry began her career on the ’90s sitcom Sister, Sister opposite her twin sister Tia Mowry. The pair later starred on Style Network’s Tia And Tamera. Through her Twilight Productions banner, Mowry co-produced and starred in the Lifetime movie Double Wedding. She next will be seen in a guest role on ABC Family’s Melissa And Joey. Mowry also is repped by Main Title Entertainment and attorney Kevin Garlitz.
Tamera Mowry & Tamar Braxton Among Hosts Of New Syndicated Talk Show Getting Summer Trial Run On Fox Stations
EXCLUSIVE: A new panel talk show with female hosts is entering the daytime space. I’ve learned that a syndicated talker hosted by actress-singer Tamera Mowry (Tia & Tamera), singer Tamar Braxton (Braxton Family Values), singer-actress Adrienne Bailon (The Cheetah Girls), TV personality Jeannie Mai (How Do I Look?) and comedian Loni Love will be getting a summer trial run on some of the Fox-owned stations. The exact markets and time periods are still being worked out but I hear the show, produced by Telepictures, is eyeing a July 8 launch. Titled The Real, the talker is said to be in the vein of The View and The Talk, but with a younger and entirely ethnic panel. (All five hosts are under 40.) The Real is looking to follow in the footsteps of another Telepictures syndicated talk show, Bethenny, which had a successful summer run on Fox stations last summer before getting a nationwide launch this fall. For the Fox stations, this is the second talk show that is being given a try this summer, along with Twentieth’s Kris, hosted by Kris Jenner, which premieres July 15.
Last night’s premiere of Style Network’s new docu-series Tia & Tamera posted the network’s most-watched series launch in history. The series starring twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry averaged 757,000 total viewers at 9 PM and 1.5 million for the 9 PM and 10 PM airings combined. The 9 PM premiere also ranks as Style’s most-watched series launch ever among women 18-49 (357,000) and women 18-34 (203,000). The successful launch gives Tia Mowry two hit cable series; she also stars on BET’s The Game. Meanwhile, last night’s third-season finale of VH1′s Basketball Wives logged a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49, making it the highest-rated telecast on VH1 in two years, and drew 2.6 million viewers. And Oxygen’s The Glee Project hit another series high with 912,000 viewers on Sunday.
EXCLUSIVE: Twelve years after their sitcom Sister, Sister ended its run on ABC, identical twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry are headlining another series together. The Style Network has given a six-episode order to Tia & Tamera Take 2, a docu-series about the current lives of the former child stars, with Tia going through her first pregnancy and Tamera planning her wedding. The series, which will premiere in late summer, stems from the Tia & Tamera Take 2 reality special the network aired in July. “The feedback from their special on Style last year was incredibly positive and showed us how much our viewers identify with these women, their humor and optimistic outlook on life and their daily journey to balance successful professional pursuits with their equally important personal and social lives,” said Style president Salaam Coleman Smith.
