Barbara Walters to Take Backstage Seat for THE VIEW Season Premiere

Showbiz411's Roger Friedman reveals that when ABC's THE VIEW returns for its all-new season, former host and show creator Barbara Walters will be in attendance, backstage that is.

According to the report, when the show returns on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 (11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, ET) , Walters will continue her role as executive producer from behind the curtain. "She will not appear on the set," says a source. The legendary journalist still retains a 17% ownership of the daytime talker. While she has lost her controlling interest, she still plans to fulfill her role as an executive.

As BWW announced earlier today, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace are the new co-hosts of the show, joining moderator Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell.

Perez's diverse talents range from actress, dancer, and choreographer to director and author. As an actress, the multi-talented performer's credits include "Do the Right Thing," "White Men Can't Jump," "The Counselor" and "Fearless" for which she received an Oscar® nomination. Perez chronicled her story in her 2014 memoir Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I SURVIVED Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother, and Still Came Out Smiling (with Great Hair). She is the Artistic Chair of Urban Arts Partnership and sits on the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS.

Wallace is a best-selling author and political analyst for MSNBC. She served as communications chief for George W. Bush's White House and re-election campaign and senior advisor for the McCain-Palin campaign in 2008. The California native is also the author of the New York Times bestselling contemporary political novel, "Eighteen Acres" , "It's Classified"

As previously announced, a new team has taken the helm of "The View" with Bill Wolff as executive producer, Brian Balthazar as co-executive producer, Ashley S. Gorman as director and Kathleen Rajsp as senior supervising producer. "The View" has also taken up residence in the ABC Broadcast Center as part of the network's plans for reinventing the popular franchise with a new studio, a contemporary state-of-the-art set with an on-camera social media station and a new Logo and color scheme.
