HBO Max adds scripted stories to its growing podcast library
HBO Max has grown its Podcast Program by leaps and bounds over the previous two years increasing from 4 exhibits in 2019 to 25 as we speak, many serving as tie-ins and companion items to HBO’s varied sequence. But that can quickly change as the corporate introduced on Wednesday that it plans to increase its on-line audio choices to embody unique, scripted programming and “look-back” exhibits as nicely.
“Our viewers tell us that, more than any other streaming platform, they want to discuss and dissect HBO Max programming with friends and family to extend the emotional experience after finishing an episode,” Joshua Walker, Chief Strategy Officer at HBO Max, said in a statement. He cites Max Podcast followers’ collective funding within the current programming as a driving drive for the corporate’s determination.
The new slate of scripted exhibits will embody the extremely anticipated Batman: The Audio Adventures starring Jeffrey Wright and premiering this fall, a look-back at Band of Brothers on September ninth (the present’s twentieth anniversary), and We Stay Looking — a sequel Issa Rae’s Insecure companion present and HBO’s first scripted podcast. HBO can be increasing its partnership with Audacity to embody titles like Lovecraft Country Radio and The Chernobyl Podcast on the streaming platform’s library.
