Vogue magazine contributing editor, André Leon Talley has reportedly signed a deal with production company Electus (founded by ex-NBC Entertainment co-chairman Ben Silverman and IAC Corp.) to develop a late-night talk show, which Talley will obviously host, as well as executive produce.

Calling it "a potential chat-fest," WWD says that Talley's goal is to create...

"... 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."

Marc Beckman who brokered the deal between Talley and Electus, says that they are aiming for a cable TV network with the show, adding...

"We think a television platform is an ideal showcase for André’s personality to shine and bring together his amazing network of personal contacts, ranging from designers to musicians to politicians..."

No ETA on when audiences can expect the show to debut, but it's noted that it won't take Talley away from his Vogue magazine duties. He'll continue as contributing editor of the publication.

Certainly no stranger to the camera, Talley has appeared as himself on America’s Next Top ModelSex and The City: The Movie, The September Issue and Valentino: The Last Emperor, to name a few.

If this new talkshow launches next season, Talley will be joining a crowded talkshow market (both daytime and primetime), with several other existing (and upcoming) black hosts claiming (or hoping to claim) their own pieces of the pie, whether during the day, or at night.
