“Mel has a message and a methodology that connects with women and she knows her audience,” said John Weiser, president of first run television at Sony TV. “She has a distinctive and fresh approach to navigating the life challenges women face every day and we’re going to utilize Mel’s unique entrepreneurial strength in the digital media space to better connect with our audience. “

Mindy Borman will serve as executive producer on Robbins’ show. Borman has won three Daytime Emmy Awards as executive producer of “The Dr. Oz Show,” which she launched in 2009. Additionally, she also was a producer of “The View” and “Good Morning America.”
