Foxtel acquires The Drew Barrymore Show

Foxtel has announced it has secured the Australian rights to The Drew Barrymore Show. The series will bring optimism, information and inspiration to Fox Arena from next month.

Known world-wide for her infectious brand of humour and positivity, host Drew Barrymore shares her undeniably relatable point of view in this fresh and unique, multi-topic format celebrating every part of humanity along the way.

Drew elevates, inspires and entertains with segments that reflect her personal passions including upbeat news, heart-warming, human interest stories, compelling lifestyle segments, celebrity guest interviews and collective experiences for viewers designed to enhance all our lives.

As a lead in to the Express episodes and to kick off the series on FOX ARENA, the premiere episode will air Monday February 1 at 7.30pm AEDT, featuring a “Charlie’s Angels” reunion with guests Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu reuniting with host Drew Barrymore, nearly 20 years since the blockbuster film premiered. Drew also reunites with long-time friend and co-star Adam Sandler.

“From news to pop culture, human interest to comedy- we can have those amazing discussions that we need to have in order to grow,” Barrymore said. “I love exploring everything and finding our way to beauty and wisdom as well as to the heart and humour in life. I want to reach for an intelligent optimism and just have some fun while doing so.”

Group General Manager of LifeStyle and FOX ARENA Wendy Moore said, “Drew Barrymore is loved by Australian women, her honest, authentic, and down-to-earth approach to her life has endeared her to all of us. The Drew Barrymore Show reflects what women want for ourselves today and we are so excited that we can bring the show to Australia for our Foxtel viewers.”

The Drew Barrymore show features segments, “Designed by Drew”, one of the show’s signature segments and “Drew’s News,” a topical segment where Drew and her guest break down the day’s most surprising and compelling stories from pop culture to human-interest. Funny, informative and inspiring, these stories are curated and shared through Drew’s personal lens of heart, humour and optimism.
