HBO Pacts with Charlamagne Tha God for Interview Specials


HBO has inked a deal with Charlamagne Tha God, co-host of the nationally syndicated hip-hop iHeartRadio program The Breakfast Club, for a series of interview specials.

The Gray Area with Charlamagne Tha God is a series of four interview specials featuring the radio host and TV personality. The first episode is scheduled to debut later this year. The program is executive produced by Charlamagne Tha God and Karen Kinney.

“Charlamagne brings a provocative, thoughtful and always honest voice to all of his interviews,” said Nina Rosenstein, the executive VP of HBO programming. “We think these specials will be surprising and enlightening and we look forward to seeing who he brings to the table.”

“I feel extremely blessed to be able to announce my official partnership with HBO on a new conversation series which will provide a safe space for ‘unsafe’ people to curate their stories and control their own narratives,” noted Charlamagne Tha God. “The reality is, when it comes to people’s stories, it’s not black or white, it’s always an area that’s a shade of gray and that’s usually where the lies end and the truth begins, and this show will give those people an opportunity to share their truth. Thank you to my new television home, HBO and all praise is due to God!”
