“Pickler & Ben” SET TO CHANGE THE FACE OF DAYTIME TV FROM NASHVILLE WITH SEPT. 18 DEBUT
“Pickler & Ben,” daytime television’s newest “go-to” destination for the best in lifestyle and entertainment, launches nationally on Monday, Sept. 18. Hosted by country music star Kellie Pickler and Emmy-winning television personality Ben Aaron, this highly anticipated talk show will premiere in 38 local television markets across the country.
The show features Kellie and Ben hosting segments with top celebrities, tastemakers and experts on everything from entertaining and home design to cooking, DIY and more. The show will be recorded in front of a live audience at a studio in one of America’s hottest cities — Nashville — on an expansive, modern farmhouse-style set.
“This show truly feels like home — it’s like spending time with a bunch of good friends who just stopped by to trade stories on the back porch,” said Pickler. “We have a little something for everyone. We’ll laugh, get inspired and meet some very talented and extraordinary people.”
“When Kellie and I get together, it’s anything but predictable,” said Ben. “We have an incredible team of creative minds behind this show, and I can’t wait to deliver our country-city combo to viewers across America.”
Through a partnership with leading entertainment and lifestyle retailer, HSN, “Pickler & Ben” will feature a unique interactive format inviting viewers to “shop the show” by purchasing items featured on air from the comfort of their homes. Fans can shop items directly on PicklerandBen.com and HSN.com.
“Pickler & Ben’s” live studio audience will include a mix of Nashville locals and out-of-towners seeking the best in entertainment. Nashville is one of the country’s fastest-growing cities, with nearly 100 people each day moving to the city made famous by country music, all-American food, Southern charm and world-class hospitality. Fans are invited to join a taping by requesting tickets through the show’s website.
“Pickler & Ben” is produced by Grammy Award-winning superstar Faith Hill; co-founder of Happy Street Entertainment, Lisa Erspamer; and president and CEO of Sandbox Entertainment Jason Owen; in partnership with The E.W. Scripps Company (NYSE: SSP). Award-winning director, Joe Terry (“The Oprah Winfrey Show”) will direct “Pickler & Ben.” Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution is distributing the show in national syndication.
