As part of a corporate restructuring, Telegdy additionally became the head of NBCUniversal's syndication division in late 2016. Despite being reluctant at first, Clarkson accepted the offer for the series in an effort to 'connect with people, play games, music and find ways to help or give back to communities/organizations. ' She also sought advice from various television presenters, including, Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres, and Blake Shelton. On August 6, 2018, it was reported by Broadcasting & Cable that Clarkson had filmed a pilot for the talk show that was later offered for syndication, broadcast on another platform, or both.
