‘Latifah’ exec producer ankles

Chermol's departure won't affect prod'n

With the clock counting down to its debut next month, “Latifah” executive producer Kathy Chermol has left the talker amid creative differences.

Representatives from both the show and the exiting producer cite an amicable parting of ways, which will leave the talker’s host Queen Latifah and her long-time manager Sha-Kim Comepre in charge of running the program as exec producers.

Chermol still has a production deal with “Latifah” distribber Telepictures and has been with the company since 1992, when she exec produced “Jane Whitney,” “Carney” and “In Person With Maureen O’Boyle” for the studio. Chermol has also worked on “Sally Jessy Raphael.” Studio sources say she will remain with the company working on start-up projects.

“The show’s been in production since mid-July, and as with start-ups there are some staff changes (before airing),” said a Telepictures spokesperson. “This change will not affect production whatsoever.”

“Latifah” is slated to bow on Sept. 20 on Fox stations.
