What is the new Serial podcast going to be called?
So according to sources online, the Serial creators are working on a new podcast spinoff. They’ve formed a new production company, called Serial Productions, and the newest series will be called S-Town.
What will the S-Town be about?
It’s going to be a nonfiction series based in a small, rural town in Alabama, hosted by This American Life producer Brian Reed. They got the idea for the series when a man contacted them to cpmplain about his small town in Alabama – he asked the reporters to investigate the son of a rich family who had supposedly been bragging about getting away with murder. Producer Brain started to look into it, then someone else died, and it transcribed that there was a nasty fued involved and a hunt for hidden treasure. Well that sounds GRIPPING doesn’t it.
Who is involved in this new Serial project?
Brain Reed, obviously. Sarah Snyder, who co-created ‘Serial,’ with Sarah Koenig is the executive producer of ‘S-Town, is also working alongside Ira Glass (This American Life creator and host) and Starlee Kine.
When is the S-Town out?
March 28th people. MARCH 28TH. It’s so soon. Get your ears ready. You can listen to a preview below.
