The podcast network behind Morbid: A True Crime Podcast, has reached an exclusive ad sales and one-week windowing agreement, according to Alaina Urquhart and Ashleigh Kelley on Thursday.
Wondery and Amazon Music have announced new episodes of Morbid and all other major podcast platforms, including That's Spooky, Cult Liter, Seven Deadly Sinners, Obitchuary, Alone at Lunch, and Mostly Horror Movie Night and Scream. One week early, Wondery and Amazon Music will have exclusive rights to the network's ad advertising, merchandising, distribution, and future shows.
According to Urquhart and Kelley, captive listeners will receive an additional episode each week, bringing the total to three episodes published a week under the agreement with Wondery and Amazon Music. The two hostes are also expected to host their own solo programs on astrology and "old timey" murder instances. "You're going to be swimming in content, and we couldn't be [happier."
According to Chartable, Morbid is the most popular comedy podcast in the United States, with its fourth most popular podcast across all industries. The show was first released in 2018, with Urquhart, an autopsy technician, and Kelley, a hairstylist, discussing truth crime cases.
The agreement, led by UnJu Paik and Jenn Cron for Wondery, will begin on June 1. Morbid Network is managed by Seth Jacobs at Brillstein Entertainment Partners and is managed by Marissa Hurwitz at WME.
