The Red Table’s reach is set to grow exponentially.
Because Jada Pinkett Smith‘s ‘Red Table Talk’ has inked a major deal that will see the platform expand into a podcast audio network.
Full story below…
Per Deadline, the franchise (which is owned by The Smiths’ Westbrook imprint and enjoys prominence as a flagship show on Facebook Watch) has entered into a overall pact with iHeartMedia. The commercial union will birth a number of Red Table Talk branded podcasts.
The deal is said to include five new shows that will arrive over the next two years.
First up is a podcast version ‘Red Table Talk: The Estefans.’ Anchored by icon Gloria Estefan, her daughter Emily Estefan, and niece Lili Estefan, the audio incarnation of the Emmy nominated series makes its debut today (August 25) on iHeartMedia’s My Cultura.
Speaking in a statement, Gloria said:
“We are thrilled to join the Red Table Talk Audio Network. This podcast lets my fans get to know me, my amazing daughter, Emily, and my niece, Lili, on a deeper level through our hold-nothing-back opinions and life experiences. Having our Facebook show on this new network allows us to reach millions of new listeners everywhere and we’re excited to have that opportunity.”
Other podcasts on the network include the banner series ‘Red Table Talk’ and ‘Positively Gam’ – which is hosted by Jada’s mom and co-host Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
Additional podcasts are due to be announced soon.
We love to see the growth!
