Good news for Wendy Williams’ fans — The Wendy Williams Show is getting a face-lift for its upcoming season 4 — will air in high definition when it returns September 10 and will also feature a new studio, enhanced set and an extended “Hot Topics” segment.
Hollywood Reporter: “The new set design — which was overseen by the show’s set designer Mark Sloan,with input from Williams and others — will incorporate the host’s signature colors, pink and purple.
“People will recognize the set from last season, but this season it will be enhanced,” Williams told The Hollywood Reporter. Additionally, “we’re using high-def, which will make everything sharper, and we have a bigger [studio] space.”
Williams also said the “Hot Topics” segment — a “fan favorite” in which she delivers her take on the biggest headlines — previously ran about 10-12 minutes, but the expanded segment will run “a good 18 minutes.”
“And that’s before we even go to commercial,” she said. “We get a lot of ground covered in that time.”
The show also has added two talent producers for its fourth season: Stephanie Sacco, who will head up the department, overseeing all celebrity bookings with a focus on film and television guests, and Anthony Lopez, who will handle music, celebrity author, comedy and Broadway bookings.
I have watched The Wendy Williams Show a few times, while I am not a big gossip fan, she has a big following and has improved a great deal. Congratulations Wendy Williams!
