Disney|ABC has entered into a development holding agreement with TV anchor and journalist Tamron Hall.

The studio will work with Hall to create and develop a daytime talk show, which she will host, for the syndication marketplace. Hall has been the host of Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall on Investigation Discovery since September 2013. She was part of the NBC News team as a co-host of the third hour of NBC News’ Today and the anchor of MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with Tamron and look forward to bringing a fresh, new daytime talk show to stations across the country that will showcase her enormous talent and dynamic personality,” said Janice Marinelli, president of global content sales and distribution for direct-to-consumer and international of The Walt Disney Company.

“Tamron’s wealth of experience and unique perspective is needed in today’s daytime landscape,” added William Burton, senior VP of ABC Daytime. “We look forward to developing a daily destination showcasing her spirit, boundless enthusiasm and powerful ability to engage with viewers.”

“I’m so thrilled to partner with Disney|ABC to create a daytime television show that’s unconventional, fun, intimate and sometimes even raw,” said Hall. “My new partners appreciate and respect the relationship I’ve built with my audience and know that if we create television worth watching, they’ll join us for the ride. I’m so grateful and excited for this next chapter. The landing makes the leap of faith so worth it!”
