After conquering movies, TV, retail and books it was only a matter of time before Reese Witherspoon got her own talk show or in this case, her own channel. That's right. Reese Witherpoon is getting her own channel.
On Tuesday, Witherspoon’s media brand Hello Sunshine and AT&T announced they are debuting two new female-driven series on DirecTV, DirecTV Now, and U-Verse with the launch of the Hello Sunshine Video on Demand channel.
One of the shows will be a talk show hosted by Witherspoon. Reese has been interviewing A-list guests on her social media channels for years so this will be a completely natural transition. Plus, can you think of anyone more delightful to be interviewed by than Reese Witherspoon?
The unscripted series is called Shine on with Reese and will premiere on July 17. It will celebrate “the stories of extraordinary women who have created their own unique paths to success” according to a press release, with Witherspoon uncovering “what inspires, motivates, and gives joy to each of these trailblazers” and hears “their perspectives on ambition, work, family and hopes for the future.” Upcoming guests include appearances from Dolly Parton, Ava DuVernay, Pink, America Ferrara, and Kacey Musgraves. Not too shabby!
“I am thrilled to have such like-minded, creative collaborators at AT&T to help Hello Sunshine pursue our mission of elevating and showcasing the voices of women that we have such admiration and respect for,” said Witherspoon. “I am so excited for the world to experience the stories from our partnership with AT&T, which are set to be equal parts entertaining, inspiring, thought-provoking and unabashedly real.”
“Shine On With Reese is about experiencing with Reese the stories of exceptional artists, entrepreneurs and leaders who happen to be women, and reveals how their personal journeys are unique yet relatable,” said Charlotte Koh, head of digital media and programming at Hello Sunshine. “It epitomizes our goal of telling unexpected stories from interesting women’s perspectives.”
