'American Ninja Warrior' and 'The Good Place' amongst shows to feature on NBC's official podcast
As if fans aren't getting enough of their favorite TV shows, now, some of the select series currently on NBC are set to get a podcast treatment. Meaning, exclusive conversations, and more behind-the-scenes gossip will be available at your disposal with the recent launch of the network's Entertainment Podcast Network.
And the shows that have made the cut include the action-packed series "American Ninja Warrior" and the Kristen Bell-starring dramedy "The Good Place". The podcasts for these two shows, however, will feature alongside the “Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast,” which has already garnered a steady fan-following.
“With the success of the ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast,’ we saw an opportunity to expand our storytelling beyond the broadcast and offer a deeper dive into their favorite shows,” Rob Hayes, Executive Vice President, NBC Entertainment Digital said, dishing on what fans should expect following the launch that goes through in the coming weeks.
“Our new NBC Entertainment Podcast Network gives fans a chance to hear more in-depth stories these shows, all from the point of view of the collaborators that put each addicting episode together,” he further added.
As of now, NBC is looking forward to a jam-packed fall line-up on its broadcast front, with the tenth season of "American Ninja Warrior" airing on Wednesday, May 30. Ahead of the season premiere, however, the Ninja podcast, hosted by Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila, has already taken off.
And once the season is on air, some of the fan-favorite contestants are expected on the podcast, for more personal exchanges.
Later, on June 1, host Marc Evan Jackson will be taking over the reigns of “The Good Place - The Podcast”. A rotating slate of co-hosts and special guests, including actors, writers, producers and more are expected to feature on the Bell-led show's podcast.
NBC's podcast episodes will be available on all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play and more.
