Newton’s credits include the U.K. morning show “Daybreak.” Davilas is an Emmy winner for the syndicated talk show “The Doctors,” which he also launched.

“We have strategically assembled a diverse team with strong leadership in Shane Farley and co-ep, Rebecca Mayer, who will join executive producers Tyra Banks and Mark Schulman,” said Lisa Hackner, ABC Entertainment’s exec VP of daytime & syndicated programming, who made the announcement. “This is a dream team of award-winning television producers culled from the daytime world as well as cable reality, and together they are uniquely positioned to launch a modern and innovative new daytime franchise this fall.”

“FabLife” will premiere in September. It will focus on Banks and a panel of guests that will include model Chrissy Teigen and Yahoo Style’s Joe Zee. It is produced by Disney/ABC’s Summerdale Productions and distributed by Disney | ABC Domestic Television.
