A podcast network has been launched that will include a series of programming hosted by Lupita Nyong'o, Jason Derulo, and Billy Mann.
Interval Presents, the network, led by Allan Coye, WMG's svp digital strategy, and business development, will focus on developing with topics at the intersections of music, pop culture, and social impact, according to the company on Tuesday.
Nyong'o's nonfiction documentary, created by Snap Judgment, will explore the African diaspora through the lens of nonfiction storytelling. Derulo will appear in a fictional romance show with noir influences, while Mann will talk with other artists about failure and overcoming adversity.
Snap Judgment, Awfully Nice, and Double Elvis have combined to develop content for the podcast network. A series from Double Elvis will examine the impacts of color on television, print, and television, while a second series from the producer will explain the history of prominent Warner Music artists.
The first slate of podcasts from Interval Presents is expected to be released later this year.
"Interval Presents has the ability to create and share podcast content that propels fresh, engaging conversations around key topics and topics that matter to diverse communities," Coye said in a statement. "This is just the beginning, and as we grow, we hope to keep true to our roots in music while also using audio artistry as a way to explore new cultures of storytelling and ultimately connect deeply with our audience."
