The third show in ASPiRE's vaunted slot of series has let go a preview of their upcoming new talk show, Exhale, which is said to be hosted by Angela Burt-Murray, Erin Jackson, Malinda Williams, Rene Syler and VIBE's favorite awkward girl—Issa Rae.
Directed by Victoria Mahoney, Exhale is slated for an eight episode first run on Comcast. Chosen from a host of candidates, the new talker is expected to reach 20 to 30 million homes by the end of this year.
"We are thrilled to add 'Exhale' to our lineup of original programming," said the ASPiRE GM Paul Butler. "This fresh, hip and candid new series will enlighten audiences with its broad range of topics relevant to the community." The new channel was launched last June and while it won't be carried by all cable TV providers, the network launched by Magic Johnson will certainly star some of Black Hollywood's favorite people. Issa Rae, Malinda Williams, comedian Erin Jackson, journalist (and former Essence EIC) Angela Burt-Murray and journalist Rene Syler will sit together and talk soup about a wide range of issues, from love and relationship to health, business and entertainment news.
The preview for the show (which you can see below), finds the women discussing things like, "Can women have it all?" They also cover health and fitness with actress and wellness coach AJ Johnson; intimacy and sex with Kelly Price and they sit down with "Eye Candy" Lance Gross, which is sure to be a hit for fans of chocolate.
Produced by Lynne Robinson and Black Robin Media, Exhale will breathe life into audiences with an eight episode run beginning June 27th at 8:00pm.
