The 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant's new series, 'The Ricki Lake Show,' will air on Fox and Tribune broadcasting stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas.

The show will cover topics such as parenting, weight loss, heartbreak and healing, all targeted at women in the 25-54 demographic.

"I want to spark ideas and conversations and inspire people to take active roles in their communities, relationships and their well-being," Lake said in a statement.

The show is scheduled to premiere in Sept. 2012.

"Now less than a year away from debut, anticipation continues to build with television viewers and the station community for Ricki Lake's fresh, new talk show return," Paul Franklin, executive vice president and general sales manager at 20th Television, said in a statement.
