Wanda Sykes will host 2 hour-long specials for the Logo network that will focus on “hot topics for the gay and lesbian voter and where the Presidential candidates stand on those issues,” featuring a roundtable of panelists, promising to be fair and balanced, with all sides (well, probably just Republican and Democrat) represented in the conversations.
Expect the specials to tackle hot-button issues like gay marriage, healthcare and of course the economy.
“These specials will be thought provoking, exciting and the perfect forum to discuss important issues facing our community… Plus, it is Logo so maybe I’ll get to dress in drag,” Sykes said in a statement.
Deadline says that the first of the two specials will be taped in front of a live studio audience, and will air four days after the Democratic Convention, on September 10th at 10pm.
And the second will air on election-eve, November 5th.
To be titled NewNowNext Vote With Wanda Sykes, the specials will be executive produced by Mark Consuelos, Albert Bianchini, Liz Stanton, and Logo’s Brent Zacky and Christopher Willey.
