Vogue contributing fashion editor Andre Leon Talley has signed a deal with Electus production company with plans to create his own late night talk show.
Talley told Womens Wear Daily that they are designing a show that “blends Dick Cavett’s approach to eloquence and sophistication with unparalleled access into my international fashion lifestyle. A forum where unique stories will be told and inspirations shared.”
Talley will serve as co-executive producer, alongside Electus.
The fashion icon has judged America’s Next Top Model, served as a fashion correspondent for Entertainment Tonight, and covered red carpet events for ABC.
DMA United broker Marc Beckman who brokered the deal told WWD that Talley will still contribute to Vogue while exploring other special projects within Conde Nast.
The show is still in early stages of development, but will likely premiere on a cable network.
