EXCLUSIVE: Cream Productions, the company behind CNN’s upcoming documentary The Story of Late Night, has created a podcast division.
This comes before the launch of Behind the Desk: The Story of the Late Night, an accompanying podcast produced in partnership with CNN Audio. The podcast will be released on April 22nd, before the show airs on May 2nd.
Cream develops a number of non-fiction books with original stories and TV spin-offs. The first show is My Pop’s Culture, a ten-part series that bridges the great gap between Gen X and Millennial generations in pop culture.
Hosted by father Marshall Kaplan and son Ben, the series covers a variety of subjects and is recorded in Marshall Kaplan’s basement, which houses thousands of pop culture relics from his past.
Carol Burnett, Carol Baskin, Trixie Mattel and Gilbert Gottfried are among the guests. It is due to be released later this summer and is being produced by James Farr and Johnny Kalangis with production assistance from Wafa Ktaech and Chris Cobain of The Wilders.
“For Cream, penetrating the podcast landscape is a natural evolution that enables us to expand our expertise in premium documentary films. Dive deeper into the accompanying podcast series. and test and explore new content, ”said David Brady, CEO of Cream Productions. “On the heels of Behind the Desk: The Late Night Story promises to be a laughing experience at My Pop’s Culture, supported by the non-traditional, non-linear podcasting format.”
