Coming July 13 — a full slate of original content including five audio series in development.
Introducing Tribeca Audio.
Its flagship series, “Tribeca Audio Premieres,” comes ahead of a scripted miniseries with a full cast designed for spatial audio, an audio documentary series, an experimental microcast, and an episodic podcast that pairs New York City theater with indie audio drama.
“As Tribeca expands its slate of year-round programming, Tribeca Audio will further extend our curatorial footprint into the world of audio storytelling, one of the fastest growing storytelling mediums today” says Jane Rosenthal, co-founder and CEO of Tribeca Enterprises. “Through its flagship series, ‘Tribeca Audio Premieres,’ the network will champion the work of today’s greatest audio artists while connecting their work to new and expansive audiences.”
Hosted by Davy Gardner, Head of Tribeca Audio and Curator of Audio Storytelling at the Tribeca Festival, “Tribeca Audio Premieres” is described as a festival in audio form, airing every other week. Each episode will premiere the first full episode of a new podcast series alongside an interview with the creators, hosts, performers, and musicians behind the making of the selected show.
The first two episodes will spotlight two different podcast premieres with a shared theme–mother-son relationships. “Radiotopia Presents: My Mother Made Me” from The New York Times best-selling author and National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jason Reynolds, explores his relationship with his mother, Isabel.
Crooked Media and Audacy’s “Mother Country Radicals” from award-winning playwright and screenwriter Zayd Dohrn, documents his experience growing up in hiding from the FBI with his fugitive mother, Bernandine Dohn, the most wanted woman in America.
