Staring this spring Latifah will produce and star in an AOL web series about sports, entertainment and entrepreneurialism, which will be overseen by Arianna Huffington, co-founder of the Huffington Post.

"I'm kind of the Barbara Walters. I'll definitely float in and out. It's great having a company that's supportive of doing the same kinds of things and looking to the future, as opposed to trying to hold on to how things were in the past," Latifah tells THR.

In return for her efforts, Latifah will benefit from the some 15 million daily visitors to AOL, as well as the marketing push and creative flexibility the company offers.
