Drew Barrymore Eyes Talk Show Pact With Warner Bros.

Might Drew Barrymore soon add “talk show host” to her resume?

There are rumblings that the actress has been discussing a talk show development deal with Warner Bros. and Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production banner.

Barrymore is already in business with Warner Bros. TV’s Shed Media as the narrator of the upcoming NBC unscripted series “First Dates,” also from DeGeneres’ shingle. That show trains cameras on couples who are going on first dates at the same Chicago restaurant.

Sources emphasized that there’s no deal in place for Barrymore on the talk show front yet, but the conversations have been ongoing. If a deal were to come to fruition, DeGeneres would be an exec producer.

A representative for Warner Bros. declined to comment.

Barrymore has become more active as a producer in television in recent years. She’s an exec producer of the Esquire series “Knife Fight” and was an EP on VH1’s “Tough Love.” Barrymore and WB have also been discussing a development deal for her as a producer.

On the acting front, Barrymore is gearing up for a starring role in Netflix’s upcoming comedy “Santa Clarita Diet,” in which she’ll star opposite Timothy Olyphant. She’s also an exec producer on the series.

Barrymore’s long list of acting credits include “Scream,” “Donnie Darko” and “Charlie’s Angeles,” and many romantic comedies including “Never Been Kissed,” “The Wedding Singer” and “50 First Dates.”

Barrymore is repped by CAA.
