Ice-T and Coco Are Getting a Daytime Talk Show

Couple plans to showcase 'hip, married humor and honesty'

Actor Ice-T and wife Coco Austin are bringing their act to daytime TV. Ice & Coco will get a three-week test run this summer on several FOX-owned stations.

Telepictures, which is producing the show, says the couple "brings a fresh perspective to the daily talk show format with their unique interview style and enthusiasm for joining in the conversation."

"It's a fun show with our own style of hip, married humor and honesty," the couple said in a release.

Ice and Coco may be best known for their reality show Ice Loves Coco, which ran for three seasons on E!

"We see this as another attempt to do something different—big personalities, new to the day part," said Frank Cicha, svp of programming for FOX Television Stations. "Ice-T helped change popular culture. We're trying to do the same thing for daytime."

Ice & Coco will tape in front of a live audience at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York. The premiere is set for Monday, Aug. 3, in New York and Los Angeles, with more stations and timeslots expected to be announced soon.
