PAWHUSKA, Oklahoma -- Food Network announced Thursday a new daytime show for the 2011-2012 season featuring Pawhuska resident Ree Drummond, better known as "The Pioneer Woman."

Drummond also made the announcement on her Facebook page.

"I'm excited to confirm that I'm doing a Food Network show straight from the ranch. Details to come, but for now I'll just promise you that it'll be fun, a little different, possibly wacky, full of kids, dogs, and horses and I won't cook anything that I wouldn't normally cook in my everyday life. This would include anything involving bananas or fat substitutes," said Ree Drummond.

The Food Network says Pioneer Woman will air during the daytime.
