Access  What hath Billy Bush wrought?

Actually, there’s no sign that Bush will be involved in “Access Hollywood Live,” the daily spin-off talk strip set to launch on NBC-owned stations this September.

The entertainment-driven syndicated show, announced Tuesday, will “will focus on the latest celebrity dish, opinions, Hollywood happenings and all the day’s big news,” NBC Universal Domestic TV Distribution said in a press release.

Here’s more:

The new show, which will be broadcast live, will feature in-studio guests, a cast of regular contributors and female-friendly segments on the most up-to-date styles, fashion, design trends and more. Executive Producer Rob K. Silverstein and the experienced “Access Hollywood” production team will produce “Access Hollywood Live” from Los Angeles.

“The team at ‘Access Hollywood’ does entertainment news better than anyone and we are thrilled to extend this successful franchise to a new daypart,” said NBC U Domestic TV Distribution president Barry Wallach. “‘Access Hollywood Live’ is going to give the daytime viewers on the NBC Local Media stations an opportunity to get all the latest Hollywood news, styles and trends in a live new format.”

NBC stations clearing the show include New York’s WNBC, Los Angeles’ KNBC, Chicago’s WMAQ, San Francisco’s KNTV, San Diego’s KNSD and Hartford’s WVIT. It fills some of the void left by the cancellation of “The Bonnie Hunt Show.”
