‘The Queen Latifah Show’ Promotes Todd Yasui to Executive Producer for Season 2

“The Queen Latifah Show” is shuffling its senior staff, promoting former co-executive producer Todd Yasui to executive producer status and upping supervising producers Jack Mori and Ianthe Jones to co-executive producers for season two.

Amy Coleman is also joining the talkshow as consulting producer while Fernita Wynn will serve as supervising producer.

“As we look ahead to our second season of ‘The Queen Latifah Show,’ we are proud to be able to elevate the key members of our team who contributed greatly to our initial success and we look forward to building on that success with the fresh energy and depth of expertise that Amy and Fernita bring to the staff,” said Holly Jacobs, Executive Vice President of Syndication and Reality Programming, Sony Pictures Television.

Sources indicate that previous showrunner Corin Nelson has exited the series entirely.

Previously, Yasui was executive producer of “The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn,” before serving as Senior Vice President of Late Night Programming for Fox for five years.

“The Queen Latifah Show” drew more than 1.5 million viewers per show in its freshman season. The daytime series is produced by Flavor Unit, Overbrook Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television, and is cleared on major station groups around the country, including the CBS Television Stations.
