The Jeremy Kyle Show is an American daytime television tabloid talk show presented by Jeremy Kyle that debuted in the United States and Canada on September 19, 2011. The series is based on Kyle's British talk series of the same name. The series was taped in New York. The program is a co-production of ITV Studios' U.S. subsidiary, ITV Studios America and Debmar-Mercury, which serves as distributor for the U.S. version while ITV keeps all international rights.SynopsisAs with the UK version, the series uses a confrontational style, which sees guests attempt to resolve issues with others that are significant in their lives, such as family, relationship, sex, drug, alcohol and other issues. "Guest Support" is provided by psychiatrist Dr Janet Taylor.The show's style was one of the reasons why Fox and Debmar-Mercury saw potential in adapting Kyle's show to the United States. By November 2010, the series was picked up in over 70% of American television markets, well ahead of its September 2011 debut. Kyle also had competition among three other tabloid talkers, already established veterans (and all distributed by NBCUniversal Television Distribution), The Jerry Springer Show, The Steve Wilkos Show and Maury.
