(April 13, 2015 – New York) – FOX Television Stations and Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution will debut a three-week daily preview of “Ice & Coco,” an all-new take on the popular talk show format that adds a husband and wife twist. The announcement was made jointly today by Frank Cicha, Senior Vice President of Programming, FOX Television Stations, Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, and Mike Darnell, President, Warner Bros. Unscripted and Alternative Television. The series will premiere Monday, August 3 on select FOX-owned stations in markets, including New York and Los Angeles.
“Ice & Coco” features veteran actor and rapper Ice-T (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) and his wife, Coco (“Ice Loves Coco”), as they take on the topics of the day — all things newsworthy, celeb-worthy and, of course, puppy-worthy — showcasing the couple’s fun, authentic vibe and honest curiosity about what’s happening in the world. With years of chemistry together, this married duo from very different backgrounds brings a fresh perspective to the daily talk show format with their unique interview style and enthusiasm for joining in the conversation. Ice enjoys kicking back with a video game just as much as taking on tough topics and sharing his own sharp standpoints; Coco holds her own with honest positivity and a sincere interest in people and new ideas, and isn’t afraid to call out anyone — including her husband! The two hosts plan to interact with their celebrity guests via fun segments, games and open interviews.
Cicha stated, “We see this as another attempt to do something different — big personalities, new to the daypart. Ice-T helped change popular culture. We’re trying to do the same thing for daytime.”
“We are thrilled to continue our ongoing relationship with FOX attempting to develop the next generation of successful talk shows,” said Werner. “‘Ice & Coco’ has all the earmarks of a success.”
Said series’ hosts Ice-T and Coco: “It’s a fun show with our own style of hip, married humor and honesty.”
Executive produced by Candi Carter (“The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “Just Keke”), “Ice & Coco” is produced by Telepictures Productions.
