Facebook Watch Renews Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk


Facebook Watch has signed a new three-year deal for the Westbrook Studios-produced Red Table Talk, hosted and executive produced by Jada Pinkett Smith.

The pact will keep the series exclusively on Facebook Watch, with new episodes streaming through 2022 featuring Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith and her mother Adrienne Banfield Norris, also known as “Gammy.”

Facebook Watch has also greenlit a second Red Table Talk franchise from Pinkett Smith and Westbrook Studios, Red Table Talk: The Estefans. Featuring music icon and Grammy winner Gloria Estefan, her daughter Emily Estefan and her niece Lili Estefan, the franchise will bring the Red Table to Miami for a new series of candid conversations about today’s timely issues with family, celebrity guests and experts. Pinkett Smith and Gloria Estefan will both serve as executive producers.

Pinkett Smith said: “I’m incredibly proud of Red Table Talk, and thrilled to build upon this franchise with my family and with Gloria, Emily and Lili. Red Table Talk has created a space to have open, honest and healing conversations around social and topical issues, and what’s most powerful for me is hearing people’s stories and engaging with our fans in such a tangible way on the Facebook Watch platform. I’m excited to see the Estefans put their spin on the franchise and take it to new places.”

Gloria Estefan said: “I’m incredibly excited to carry the Red Table Talk torch with my family in Miami. Jada and I have spoken about this a lot and feel my daughter, niece and I can tackle issues important to us and our fans with a new and fresh voice. Jada has done this incredibly and continues to do so with her family in their candid, intimate, and groundbreaking conversations at the iconic Red Table.”

Mina Lefevre, head of development and programming at Facebook Watch, added: “We’ve been fortunate enough to be in business with such wonderful partners and are thrilled to expand the Red Table Talk franchise with Jada Pinkett Smith, the Estefans and Westbrook Studios. Red Table Talk is a shining example of how content, community and conversation come together on Facebook Watch. We’re proud to keep this conversation going around topics our fans care about.”
