New York, NY (January 10, 2023)—Leading premium podcast studio, Cadence13, an Audacy company, and Atlanta-based independent content production studio Tenderfoot TV today announced that they will expand their partnership through 2024, with an agreement that includes the renewal of hit series “Up and Vanished,” “To Live and Die in LA,” “Culpable” and “Radio Rental;” a new slate of weekly podcast series; ongoing series development; and a first-look opportunity at new limited series.
The first new series as part of this partnership is “High Strange,” created and hosted by Tenderfoot TV founder, Payne Lindsey. The eight-part, investigative UFO series focuses on unexplained aerial phenomena, and will debut in early 2023, with details forthcoming.
“Tenderfoot TV is at the top of its game and we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with them and continue to create innovative, thought provoking and compelling content,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer and Founding Partner, Cadence13. “Payne and Donald have made Tenderfoot the indisputable leader in the true crime genre, and we look forward to new seasons of listener favorites ‘Up and Vanished,’ ‘To Live and Die in LA,’ ‘Culpable’ and ‘Radio Rental,’ as well as a slate of new series.”
“We always strive to push the limits of podcasting and Cadence13 has consistently empowered our team to use creative freedom,” said Payne Lindsey, founder of Tenderfoot TV. “This new series is unlike anything we’ve done before, and with this partnership, we’re confident we have the support to give our listeners something truly unique.”
“Through our partnership with Cadence13, we’ve launched some of our most compelling new series, which have now become household names,” said Tenderfoot TV CEO and co-founder, Donald Albright. “This expanded partnership allows us to build on those tentpole titles as well as launch new formats, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.”
In addition to the new series, Cadence13 and Tenderfoot TV will release new seasons of hit shows “Up and Vanished,” “To Live and Die in LA,” “Culpable” and “Radio Rental”:
- Up and Vanished: “Up and Vanished” is a true crime juggernaut hosted by Payne Lindsey that investigates mysterious cold case disappearances and has garnered over 400 million downloads across three seasons. Season 1 covered the disappearance of Georgia high school teacher Tara Grinstead, resulting in two arrests, and season 2 focused on the disappearance of young mother Kristal Reisinger from a remote mountain town in Colorado, a case that has since been reopened. In season 3, Lindsey investigated the North West Montana disappearance of Ashley Loring HeavyRunner, an indigenous woman who went missing from the Blackfeet Nation Indian Reservation in 2017.
- To Live and Die in LA: Award-winning Rolling Stone journalist and bestselling author Neil Strauss hosts this award-winning investigative series. In season 1, Strauss investigates the disappearance and death of aspiring Albanian Macedonian actress Adea Shabani. In season 2, Strauss – along with his wife, Ingrid De La O, and his neighbors, Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger, and concert violinist Ann Marie Simpson – investigates the case of Elaine Park, a 20-year old aspiring actress and musician who vanished from her Hollywood apartment in 2018.
- Culpable: Hosted by Dennis Cooper and produced in partnership with Resonate Recordings, “Culpable” explores unsettled cases where those deserving of blame have somehow eluded justice. Season 1 explores the case of Christian Andreacchio, whose death was ruled his death a suicide, despite substantial evidence that points to murder. Season 2 investigates the case of Brittany Stykes, a 22-year old mother who was shot and killed while driving down Highway 68 in Brown County, Ohio.
- Radio Rental: From the mind of Payne Lindsey, discover real-life horror stories–from bizarre crimes to paranormal activity–set inside the fictional world of Radio Rental, an 80’s video rental store run by an eccentric shopkeeper, Terry Carnation, played by Rainn Wilson. This imaginative, cult classic-inspired horror brand blurs the lines of reality, with cutting-edge documentary storytelling and a splash of comedy.
Details on the slate of weekly “always on” podcast series will be announced at a later date.
