The news of Drew Barrymore’s much anticipated talk show has been making round for almost a year now. Breaking the long awaited suspense around the name of the first guest of the show, Drew has finally revealed the name to her fans.
Inspired by an interview on Johnny Carson’s show back in 1982, the 45-year-old actress was seen interviewing her seven-year-old self in an adorable new promo video for the talk show. The promo features Drew making an appearance on ‘The Tonight’ show. Interestingly, the interview was aired exactly 38 years ago this week.
In the promo, Drew could be seen interviewing her seven-year-old self about their upcoming daytime talk show. “I have so much to fill you in on. Want to hear about our new daytime show?” says 45-years-old Drew. Whereas her younger self replies, “I would love to.” At the end of the video, Drew recreates the iconic scream, she had let out while being interviewed 38-years-ago.

@thedrewbarrymoreshow premieres September 14th and as I continue to practice interviewing others, I couldn’t help but look back at myself at age 7 in the hot seat on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson! Wow! It was 1982! PS… shooting this clip was so fun and a little emotional as my own 7 year old daughter Olive sat in as my 7 year old self. So, I am actually speaking to her too. I cannot wait to share this show with you. It is so personal to me and I’m grateful and proud of the journey it took us all to get this made! #DrewBarrymoreShow
Earlier this week, Drew had announced all of the content of her show’s premiere in a video on YouTube, “I’m really looking forward to this digital world we are about to bring you into,” in the same video. “A series that’s very near and dear to me is called, The Making Of The Drew Barrymore Show, I have been on this show journey for a year. We started in 2019, it is now 2020, a very different year. And what that year-long journey has been like, where were we, where are we now and how did we get to where we are going. I’m really looking forward to telling you that, in a storytelling way,” the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ actress added.
