Gayle King to Guest Star on ABC's "Hot Properties"

[via press release from ABC]


Gayle King will guest star in an upcoming episode of �Hot Properties,� it was announced today. She�s playing a role that only she knows, Oprah Winfrey�s longtime best friend.

In the episode �Waiting for Oprah,� airing FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11 (9:30-10:00 p.m.), on the ABC Television Network, Ava (Gail O�Grady) celebrates a big real estate sale by surprising the ladies with a dream come true: four hard-to-get tickets to see �The Oprah Winfrey Show� -- the woman they refer to as �kind of like our God� -- at a television taping in Chicago. But when one of the priceless tickets goes missing, they�re willing to do whatever it takes to get another one. Things start to look up when they have a chance encounter with Gayle.

�The women on �Hot Properties,� like myself, are obsessed with all things Oprah, and more than a little jealous of Gayle,� said creator and executive producer Suzanne Martin. �I can�t tell you what a thrill for all of us it is to have her be a part of our show.�

Gayle King has been the editor-at-large for the award-winning �O, The Oprah Magazine� since its inception in 2000. A former television reporter and talk show host, the Emmy-award winning King is no stranger to the national television spotlight. In 1991 she was co-host of �Cover to Cover,� a talk show on NBC. In September of 1997, she hosted her own syndicated talk show.

�Hot Properties� is an ensemble comedy featuring four unpredictable women working together in a Manhattan real estate office. These very different career women are at various stages in their lives and, when they�re not catering to high-end clients, they�re coping with their own personal predicaments.

�Hot Properties� stars Gail O�Grady as Ava Summerlin, Nicole Sullivan as Chloe Reid, Sof�a Vergara as Lola Hernandez, Christina Moore as Emerson Ives, Stephen Dunham as Dr. Charlie Thorpe and Evan Handler as Dr. Sellers Boyd and Amy Hill as Mary.

The creator/executive producer is Suzanne Martin, and the co-executive producer is Jay Daniel. The series is from Interbang Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc.
