The Canadian production company Cream Productions has unveiled its new podcast division, which will create, develop and produce nonfiction audio programming with a focus on original content and spin-offs of its televised and streaming programming.
Cream Podcasts is set to debut its first podcast docuseries, CNN Audio’s Behind the Desk: The Story of Late Night, on April 22. The podcast is a companion to the CNN original series The Story of Late Night, which premieres on May 2.
Cream is currently in full swing with My Pop’s Culture, a ten-part funny and informative podcast hosted by father Marshall Kaplan and son Ben that bridges the wide pop-culture gap between the Gen-X and Millennial generations, delving into a variety of topics. Already on board to join the conversations are such famous names as Carol Burnett, Carol Baskin, Trixie Mattel, Gilbert Gottfried. My Pop’s Culture is slated for a summer 2021 release.
The podcast is executive produced for Cream by James Farr and Johnny Kalangis, with production support from Wafa Ktaech and Chris Cobain of The Wilders.
David Brady, CEO of Cream Productions, said: “Penetrating the podcast landscape is a natural progression for Cream, allowing us to broaden our expertise in premium documentary, delve deeper with companion podcast series and test and explore new content. On the heels of Behind the Desk: The Story of Late Night, My Pop’s Culture promises to be a laugh-out-loud experience bolstered by podcasting’s nontraditional, nonlinear format.”
