Reese Witherspoon's super successful book club is heading to the small screen — with a twist! Titled Eat the Book, the club is turning into a new digital series that will pair host Christina Milian with authors, mixologists and chefs to whip up meals that are inspired by their favorite scene in that week's book choice.

The four-part series, which is appropriately partnered with Kitchen-Aid, will focus on a different book each episode. Appearances will be made by From Scratch author Tembi Locke, Jasmine Guillory of The Proposal, Delia Owens (Where the Crawdads Sing) and Amanda Eyre Ward (The Jetsetters). They'll be joined by chefs Genevieve Gergis, Karyn Tomlinson, Kim Prince and Sara Kramer.

Starting Thursday, February 18, viewers can tune in at 1 p.m. ET through the @ReesesBookClub and @HelloSunshine Instagram channels. As of now, the show is expected to air on Thursdays until March 18.

The exciting announcement comes just a few weeks after Witherspoon's book club released an app, which can be downloaded for free.

"Since we launched Reese’s Book Club, we've shown that our books have the power to spark discussions, make us laugh when we need it most, and bond us over something bigger than ourselves, all while celebrating diverse voices that put women at the center of their stories," the actress said. "Through Reese's Book Club App, we are able to forge even deeper connections with our community by providing a new platform for our book club members to engage with these stories and each other."

The Little Fires Everywhere star revealed that 100 percent of the profits facilitated from the app will be donated to "The Readership, our platform to amplify diverse voices and promote literacy."

Witherspoon launched her book club in 2017 and received an overwhelming response. The group's Instagram has nearly two million followers, and more than 30 of their book choices have gone on to become bestsellers.

Her production company Hello Sunshine is also adapting several of the club's picks — such as Taylor Jenkins Reid's Daisy and the Six — for TV and film.

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to share the news on Eat the Book.
