Drew Barrymore hopes to balance humor and heart with new talk show

One of America's sweethearts now has her own daytime talk show. The Drew Barrymore Show premieres next week.

Drew Barrymore says she's excited for her new talk show because she just gets to be herself.

Barrymore is an actress, entrepreneur, and mom and has lived her entire life in the public eye… and that includes all of her successes and missteps.

She says she will bring all of those experiences to the show.

Barrymore is a self-described pop culture junkie and a news fanatic. Her show will even have a segment called "Drews News."

She says being informed is empowering. But, Barrymore says she also wants to make people laugh.

"I really want to have a lot of comedy in the show. I come from comedy I can't survive life without it. I think that everybody gets away with it in night time because you made it through the day we'll put you to bed with some laughs. I'm here to start the day that way," Barrymore said of her new show.

Because of the pandemic, the show will have a virtual audience. Barrymore says she is just trying to "tread water" like everyone else during the pandemic.

And you know she's going to bring her good friends and co-stars on the show, including Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu for a Charlie's Angels reunion.

The Drew Barrymore Show premieres on Monday, September 14.
