The television show is slated to premiere sometime in 2024. The Community alum is working with Lionsgate's Debmar-Mercury and executive producer Jim Biederman to create the currently untitled show. Biederman is also behind hit shows like The Howard Stern Radio Show, Kids in the Hall, and Join or Die with Craig Ferguson. In addition to his future daytime talk duties, Jeong is also attached as an executive producer on the project. Since 2019, Jeong has been a panelist and judge on the hit reality singing competition show The Masked Singer. He also hosts the competition show I Can See Your Voice.

Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein said in a statement, "Ken is one of the handful of people in the world who has what it takes to succeed as a talk show host and we are excited to be in business with him." We can't wait to see what Jeong has up his sleeves. It seems like he is the perfect guy for the job, too. Bernstein and Marcus continued in their statement, "Audiences connect with Ken on many levels – not only because is he so talented, entertaining and unapologetically hilarious but their sense that he is sincere, compassionate, fearless, friendly, just genuinely nice – all essential ingredients that make for a long-term success as a talk show host. He is also a talent capable of conquering any time period with his mix of comedy, Hollywood celebrity friends and ability to bring viewers."
Speaking of Hollywood celebrity friends, the actor has quite the rolodex from his lengthy resume.
