“The Queen Latifah Show” is out with the old and in with the new.
According to the New York Post, the award-winning talk show let go of staffers last week in efforts to cut costs. An insider said the daily program was “hugely over budget” last season and needed a trim.
“While some put the number of layoffs as high as 20, an insider insisted there were only five,” Page Six reported.
A Latifah rep added, “As with any show . . . we have experienced turnover in a small number of positions in response to the creative evolution of the show, most of which have since been filled.”
“The Queen Latifah Show,” which was recently renewed for a second season, won the award for Best New Talk Show at the 2014 People’s Awards.
