If you think Saturday’s The Suze Orman Show series finale on CNBC will be the financial guru’s first step toward retirement, you probably haven’t been paying attention to Orman the past couple of decades. Next up for her is Suze Orman’s Money Wars, a half-hour daytime show from Warner Bros. that’s not dissimilar to Judge Judy. Starting in fall 2016, if all goes to plan, Orman will dish out advice to the show’s guests twice a day, five days a week.
A variety-talk show with American Idol judge Harry Connick Jr. from NBCUniversal tops the shows being developed for first-run syndication for fall 2016, according to sources. Warner Bros. is prepping the return of Love Connection and a talk show with personal finance wiz Suze Orman. Fox will be testing two or three show this summer, while Debmar-Mercury and partner Gannett work on an interactive show.
Suze Orman’s Money Wars will air five days a week and focus on families, friends and couples whose disputes about money are affecting their lives. The new show comes as the personal finance expert ends her 14-year run as host of CNBC’s The Suze Orman Show in March 2015.
