YVETTE NICOLE BROWN NAMED INTERIM HOST FOR AMC’S ‘TALKING DEAD’
Yvette Nicole Brown will serve as “interim” host for Talking Dead this fall, as well as the season 9 preview for The Walking Dead for AMC while the network continues its “assessment” of Chris Hardwick over sexual misconduct allegations.
AMC released this official statement to EW on the matter: “Yvette Nicole Brown will step in as an interim guest host of The Walking Dead Season 9 Preview Special on Aug. 5 and Talking Dead when it returns following the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead on Aug. 12, as we work to complete our assessment related to Chris Hardwick.”
Brown has appeared on multiple episodes of Talking Dead, the after-show that breaks down episodes of both Dead’s with a panel of celebrity guests and figures involved with the shows. The actress is already going to be Hardwick’s replacement for the network’s panels at San Diego Comic-Con, which kicks off with Preview Night on Wednesday, July 18.
