Boris Kodjoe, Nicole Ari Parker Set for Talkshow Test Run on Fox Stations

Married actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker are set to host a daytime talkshow that will have a test run this summer on key Fox-owned stations.

“The Boris and Nicole Show” will bow July 6 on stations that will include Fox outlets in New York and Los Angeles. The pair aim to focus on lifestyle and topical issues, as well as featuring celebrity guests.

“We met and fell in love on screen so any time we get to work together we know it will be a lot of fun,” said Kodjoe. Added Parker: “There are so many things that we are passionate about so we are thrilled that we will now have a platform to share these issues with an audience.”

The summer run of “Boris and Nicole” is in keeping with Fox’s strategy of the past few years to give regional test drives to programs before committing to a national rollout. The show was developed by Fox Television Stations’ in-house programming team headed by exec VP Stephen Brown. The hosts will serve as co-exec producers through Kirschbaum Prods.

Kodjoe and Parker met more than a decade ago while working on the Showtime series “Soul Food.” The pair are both active in film, stage and TV and are regulars on the BET series “The Real Husbands of Hollywood.”
