According to a new press release, the daytime series will make its debut next Monday, Sept 10.
“The show offers a unique take on talk that is entertaining, informative and highly watchable. Actress and producer Vivica A. Fox (Kill Bill, Empire, Curb Your Enthusiasm) leads a diverse ‘Truth Team’ of experts that includes Judge Mary Chrzanowski aka “Scary Mary,” clinical and forensic psychologist Dr. Judy Ho, lawyer and advocate Areva Martin and model, life coach and single mom Rosie Mercado.”
Executive producer Jay McGraw shared his excitement over the panel, saying, “We have an incredibly talented cast with strong opinions who deliver a show that is entertaining, informative and highly watchable.”
Dr. Phil, another executive producer, went on to describe the show as a perfect balance of meaningful discussion and entertaining banter.
“FACE THE TRUTH is an exciting, dynamic show that bridges the gap between quality television and the exploitive voyeuristic television that people are stuck with now. It’s meaningful conflict with instructive resolution.”
On each episode, real people present their problems big and small to the hosts in search of solutions. The panel members offer their opinions on issues ranging from dating and relationships to bad habits to parenting, and studio and at-home audiences weigh in on the conversation and vote on who is right and who is wrong. Special guests and celebs are slated to appear throughout the season.
“We are trying to change people’s lives for the better,” says Fox. “We have guests from all walks of life and we help them face the truth – straight up, no chaser.”
