Warner Bros. Unscripted TV in Association with Telepictures and Audacy Launch "Extra: the Podcast"
BURBANK, CA – September 12, 2023 – Warner Bros. Unscripted Television, in association with Telepictures, and Audacy today announced Extra: The Podcast, a weekly podcast from the Emmy Award-winning TV show “Extra” as they enter their milestone 30th season.
Every day, “Extra” talks to the biggest celebrities and newsmakers for breaking entertainment news, pop culture headlines, and behind-the-scenes information from Hollywood’s biggest TV series and movies, but the daily show is only 30 minutes. That’s where Extra: The Podcast comes in. Extra: The Podcast will cover the week’s major headlines as well as extended versions of “Extra’s” biggest interviews with no time limit, allowing listeners to hear the raw conversations that go even more in-depth and feature moments that didn’t make the show.
“Extra’s” executive producers Jeremy Spiegel and Theresa Coffino said, “We could not be more thrilled to partner with Audacy for Extra: The Podcast as part of our milestone 30th season. Our team of Hollywood insiders are making headlines daily and getting the biggest celebrities. The podcast will allow us to feature extended interviews not seen in the show and exclusive content not heard anywhere else.”
Hosted by “Extra” senior correspondent and weekend co-host Melvin Robert, Extra: The Podcast will launch on September 13, 2023, on the Audacy app and everywhere podcasts are available. New episodes will be released weekly on Wednesdays.
In addition to Extra: The Podcast, Warner Bros. Unscripted TV in Association with Telepictures’ popular weekly true crime series True Crime Daily: The Podcast, hosted by Ana Garcia, is now also part of the Audacy portfolio. True Crime Daily goes in-depth on some of the week’s biggest true crime stories, as well as the ones that listeners might have missed, drawing the largest and most active true crime digital community in the world. New episodes of True Crime Daily are released on Tuesdays and Fridays.
“We’re so excited to partner with Telepictures and ‘Extra,’ the leading name in celebrity and entertainment news, and to celebrate the launch of the show’s 30th season,” said Jenna Weiss-Berman, EVP, Podcasts, Audacy. “‘The podcast companions of ‘Extra’ and ‘True Crime Daily will deliver informative, compelling content to listeners across the country.”
