Days after debuting on TalkTV, Sharon Osbourne is keeping herself busy with another brand new show. 

The presenter will host a new documentary series, called Sharon Osbourne: To Hell & Back, on the Fox Nation streaming service in the US, and will focus on “how she found herself in the crosshairs of the cancel culture movement after exciting CBS’s The Talk,” according to Deadline.

The four-part series will dive into what happened when she left the American chat show last year following a heated on-air debate on racism with fellow panellist Sheryl Underwood. 

The incident led to an internal investigation, and Sharon left the show after 11 series. 

In a statement, Sharon said: “FOX Nation subscribers will have an unbridled look into the toll the cancel culture phenomenon had on my life and career. I hope telling my story for the first time will help audiences understand the impact this movement can have on individuals and families."

Jason Klarman, the president of Fox Nation, added: “We are excited to be the place that Sharon chose to tell her incredible story. From her remarkable career as a music manager, to creating television's first celebrity reality show, to her dramatic exit from 'The Talk', Sharon will take viewers behind the scenes of it all."

Not only will the show take a deep dive into Sharon’s history with The Talk, but it will also include personal stories from husband Ozzy Osbourne, as well as their children Jack and Kelly. 

There will be contributions from Meghan McCain, and new TalkTV co-star Piers Morgan.

While promoting her new show, titled The Talk (or The Talk UK), Sharon recently told The Graham Norton Show with Waitrose that her own series will be a place to share opinions freely. 

She explained: “The show will be a place where you can have an opinion and not be afraid to share it and nobody's going to put you on suspension or fire you. We're not looking for a place to be abusive, hurtful or disrespectful. It's not that way. It's just that we all think differently, don't we?"

Sharon also gave us an update on Ozzy, who has been plagued with health problems in recent years.

"He's really, really good," she said. "He's finished another album, which is coming out in September. He's busy in the studio. He still does all his writing and singing and it keeps him really happy."

The Talk airs weeknights at 9pm on TalkTV (Freeview channel 237).
