The 46-year-old broadcast journalist dismissed the importance of the series to her life and career.

The series will focus on current events, human interest stories and interviews with celebrities and other newsmakers. Barry Wallach, a former president of domestic TV distribution at NBC, will serve as a consultant.

"I've been working towards developing a talk show for a long time, but needed to make sure I did it the right way and with the right person to take the lead," The Weinstein Co. co-chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. "Tamron is far and away that person."

"She's an exceptionally talented journalist whose interviews masterfully walk the line between entertainment and hard hitting," he lauded. "We couldn't be more thrilled to begin this new venture with her."

The new venture comes nearly six months after Hall's departure from NBC News, including her position at Today. Her former Today co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Willie Geist were among those to offer their congratulations on the new show.

"Congrats @tamronhall !!! You are going to be superb! Xox," Kotb tweeted.

"She's back. Congrats to my old wing-woman, T-Hall!" Geist added.
