'The Ladygang': Hit podcast about womanhood gets a reality TV makeover
No topic is off-limit for 'Ladygang' hosts Keltie Knight, Becca Tobin and Jac Vanek as the trio sign up for a miniseries on E!
The term "ladygang" has grown in popularity after Keltie Knight, Becca Tobin and Jac Vanek started a podcast titled 'Ladygang' in 2015. The podcast is now coming to television in the form of E!'s latest miniseries set to premiere on October 28 at 10:30 pm ET.
The podcast launched by the three leading ladies grew widely popular among the female millennial fan base and, in a matter of weeks, had millions of audience boasting 25 million downloads till date. Besides winning ample podcast awards and making it to the "it" list, the show is finally coming to our screens as a 30-minute miniseries with 12 episodes.
Staying true to the podcast's theme of answering burning questions about womanhood, the TV series will do just that, but complete with footage and face-to-face interaction. This trio, who are bosses in their own right, sit around a table, pop a champagne and discuss topics that you would otherwise disclose only to your closest friends, be it sex, relationships, money, power or social media. As the description of the show goes, there is nothing "off-limits" when it comes to the 'ladygang', and we concur.
Unfiltered, witty and smart as it gets, the series, just like the podcast, will have celebrity guests taking part in discussions. In the upcoming season, you will see stars including Ed Sheeran, Karamo Brown, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Robin Thicke, April Love Geary, Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin Mchale and many more.
The much-endearing podcast that has garnered millions of fans is bound to get more fans as the series gets a TV makeover. So here's a bit of a reminder that, if you love them in the podcast, you will love them even more. There are intense heartwarming moments and snappy comebacks, especially when Jac is trolled by Becca and Keltie for being single. Well, the mix of three is just too relatable to be true.
"Becca, Jac and Keltie are those great friends who will tell you the truth even when you don't want to hear it," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, EVP Development and Production E!. "With the 'Ladygang', no subject is taboo and watching an episode is like spending a joyful night out on the town with the funniest, smartest women you could possibly find." We could not have said it better.
