The actress, who is coming off of three seasons on Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet, is shooting a pilot for a daytime talk show this week in New York for CBS Television Distribution. "Details of the hourlong show are still sketchy," reports Variety's Cynthia Littleton. "Barrymore is among the executive producers of the pilot, likely through her Flower Films banner. Sources said there is no showrunner formally attached as of yet. Barrymore circled a talk show deal with Warner Bros.’ Telepictures in 2016, but a pilot never came to fruition, in part because of a lukewarm response from prospective station groups at the time. The new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have high hopes for the show and faith in Barrymore’s appeal as a daytime TV personality."
