She recently completed hosting her late night limited run talk show Truth & Iliza, on Freeform (formerly ABC Family). The self styled talk show is a cross between social commentary, politics, pop culture and Ilizas specific brand of feminism. In November 2017, she released her first book Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity (Hachette Book Group) a subversively funny collection of essays and observations on a confident womans approach to friendship, singlehood, and relationships.
