Megan Mullally, who plays Karen on the long-running NBC sitcom Will & Grace, has signed with NBC to host her own talk show. She will take up hosting duties when Will & Grace ends in 2006.
Megan says she will have unique and inspirational people on her show and will have celebrity interviews in a variety of different environments. She also says that the show will have a very interactive Web site, from which topics and guests will come.
Mullally was originally approached by King World Syndication about doing a talk show. NBC Universal president Jeff Zucker then countered with his desire for Megan to have a show on NBC. His commitment to the project is what swayed her, says Megan.
