LAS VEGAS, Calif., Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Singer and TV personality Marie Osmond announced Tuesday in Las Vegas she plans to star in a new syndicated talk show, set to start in the fall of 2009.

"I've always wanted to do a show for women that would offer them a safe place to have some fun and get vital information," Osmond said in a statement. "'Marie' will truly reflect my personality -- funny, sometimes serious and never predictable."

"Marie Osmond is unique in this industry," added Josh Raphaelson of Program Partners, the company that will produce the new hour-long show. "She is a star with an authenticity that makes her relate-able to every woman in America."

"Marie is a true original," said Ritch Colbert of Program Partners. "And 'Marie' the series will be every bit as much a winner as she is. This is the kind of project that stations have been waiting for, for a very long time."

Osmond previously starred in "The Donny & Marie Show" and competed on "Dancing with the Stars."
