The premiere episode of "Katie" airs on ABC Sept. 10, and pop star Jessica Simpson is scheduled to join Couric on the set. This will be the 32-year-old's first on-air interview since giving birth to daughter Maxwell on May 1. Pop-rock/country crooner Sheryl Crowe will also stop by on the first episode, and is prepared to talk about her current struggle with meningioma, a brain tumor which is usually benign. According to Ace Showbiz, Crowe also recorded the theme song to the show.

Other well-known celebrities that will talk with Couric on the first season of "Katie" - Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, Barbra Streisand, Heidi Klum, Susan Sarandon, Chelsea Handler, Sofia Vergara, Wendy Williams, and "50 Shades of Grey" author E L James.

It was announced back in June that Couric had signed a $40 million contract with ABC to host the new daytime talk show under the production of Disney-ABC Domestic Television.
