“We’ve had births, deaths, life, love, happiness, sadness,” recalled Barrymore. “And occupationally, we’re all a part of something that still, to this day, we’re so proud and honoured to be a part of, and just to support friendship.”

Barrymore is prepared to put her own spin on daytime talk shows, as she told Hickey: “I just want to have fun and interesting conversations. And I love comedy. It’s my medicine in life, and I want to bring a late-night feel to daytime in that way.”

Barrymore is also taking tips from Jimmy Fallon: “He really is incredible at what he does. He is very involved and innovating. When he came on late night, people were not doing viral games, and then when he did the home show, it was so personal and lovely.”

‘The Drew Barrymore Show’ premieres Monday, Sept. 14, at 3 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
