‘Pickler And Ben’ Picked Up For Second Season

Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron‘s new talk show Pickler And Ben has been given the greenlight for a second season by the E.W. Scripps Company. The Nashville-based daytime talk show recorded in front of a live studio audience welcomed plenty of celebrity guests during its first season, including Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Molly Sims, Christian Siriano, Reba McEntire, Ty Pennington, and more. The show debuted Sept. 18, 2017.

“Kellie and Ben are a breath of fresh air in the daytime space, and audiences have loved watching them bring this fun, dynamic show to life,” said Cater Lee, vice president of programming for Scripps. “The creators’ vision that a show originating from Middle America would appeal to viewers everywhere was spot on, and we are seeing that in just a few months it is already outperforming many long-established talk shows in key demos and on social media. I am delighted that we are recommitting for a second season.”

“Pickler & Ben” is produced by Faith Hill, co-founder of Happy Street Entertainment, Lisa Erspamer, and president and CEO/Sandbox Entertainment Jason Owen in partnership with Scripps. Award-winning director Joe Terry (“The Oprah Winfrey Show”) directs Pickler & Ben. Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution is distributing the show in national syndication.
