Will lightening strike twice for Tyra Banks in the talk show arena? Banks will headline Disney-ABC's upcoming syndicated  gabfest, The F.A.B., starting September 2015.

Banks will co-host the talk show along with model  Chrissy Teigen, style guru Joe Zee, interior designer Lauren Maak and You Tube star Leah Ashley.

In a released statement, President of ABC Owned Station Group Rebecca Campbell said, "Tyra and her panel of lifestyle experts share a chemistry that is energetic and extremely entertaining."

The F.A.B. will air on ABC-owned stations in major cities, covering 23 percent of American homes and six of the top 10 markets. The freshman series will film in Los Angeles and deal with issues such as fashion, beauty and food.

"At 40, Tyra has never been more relevant than she is today and her massive and growing digital footprint exemplifies her connection with women of all ages," said Lisa Hackner, executive vice-president of daytime and syndicated programming for ABC Entertainment Group. "Tyra has curated a fresh and authentic panel of co-hosts that is diverse in expertise, digitally connected and also share a magical chemistry. Having the support of these formidable stations is a testament to the show and the perfect timing of this program."
