Meredith Vieira appeared at the 2014 TCA press tour and made clear she wanted her new talker, The Meredith Vieira Show, to have a really “homey” feel. This includes the program having its own dog on set, who will act as a service animal, as well as a mascot.
Set furniture for the new chatfest will be re-purposed from Vieira’s own home.The house band will be led by Everett Bradley, drummer for Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band.
Look for plenty of audience participation, viral videos and guest interviews — some of which will take place in bathroom stalls, as part of a segment called “Stall Talk.”
The Meredith Vieira Show will launch this fall on NBC.
