Well this is quite the interesting spin on a talk show.

Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris are teaming up for a brand new talk show. And it’s not going to be a traditional olne. The ladies will be streaming their show, “Red Table Talks,” on Facebook.  Smart.

According to Deadline, the 46-year-old actress, her daughter and mother will tackle “social and timely issues” while sharing their point-of-views as an inter-generational family. Love this.

The Girls Trip star will be executive producing the show alongside Ellen Rakieten and Miguel Melendez.

The Facebook talk show seems to have stemmed from Jada’s 2012 powerful “Red Table Talks” short film that featured conversations about “love, life, family and fame.”

Peep a clip of that below:

No word yet when the show will premiere, but we'll keep you posted.

“Being Mary Jane” is going off the air, but that doesn’t mean we’ll be seeing less of Gabrielle Union.

NBC just picked up a pilot that will feature the 45-year-old actress in an untitled Bad Boys spinoff TV series.  Chick STAYS working, doesn't she?

Deadline reports:

The untitled project centers on the Special Agent Syd Burnett character played by Union in 2003’s Bad Boys II. Last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, she is making a cross-country move from Miami to Los Angeles.

In the untitled drama, written by The Blacklist writers-producers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier, the free-spirited former DEA agent Burnett has a fresh start in her new job as an LAPD detective. She’s partnered with Nancy McKenna, a working mom who can’t help but look at Syd’s freedom with some grass-is-greener envy. These two have totally different lifestyles and approaches, but they both are at the top of their fields in this action-packed, character-driven procedural.

We’re so here for Gabby being fearless and fierce on tv every week. 

The project is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Doug Belgrad, Primary Wave Entertainment and Sony Pictures TV. Gabby will also executive produce the series. Nice.

Congrats Gabby!

By the way, "Being Mary Jane" will end its run with a two-hour movie, which will serve as a series finale. It's expected to air some time this year.
