Turns out that letting the world know that you are “possibly” Frank Sinatra’s son does wonders for a budding career in the public eye.

Mia Farrow’s 25-year-old son—a Rhodes scholar, human rights activist, author and former State Department official—will host a weekday show on MSNBC, the news organization’s president Phil Griffin said Wednesday.

Farrow told the Hollywood Reporter that his show, expected to begin airing in January, will reflect his own activism.

“What [people] still crave, and what I crave as a TV viewer, is a guide on how people can have agency in the story. And this show is all about empowering people to do that,” he said. “People want a return to real democracy.”
