February 24, 2016 at 3:41 PM (PT)
PODCASTONE is launching a podcast "inspired by" NWA and the movie "STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON," hosted by the Oscar-nominated co-screenwriter of that film.
XENON PICTURES founder and "STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON" co-writer/Executive Producer LEIGH SAVIDGE is the host of "STRAIGHT OUTTA…THE PODCAST," focusing on hip-hop culture, debuting TOMORROW (2/24) and posting every THURSDAY. The debut episode will feature NWA mentor ALONSO WILLIAMS, with ARABIAN PRINCE and a two-part interview with SUGE KNIGHT's ex-wife SHARITHA KNIGHT scheduled for future shows.
“I'm very excited to produce STRAIGHT OUTTA... with PODCASTONE,” said SAVIDGE. “PODCASTONE is the ideal platform to bring the fascinating--and largely untold--stories surrounding STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON and hip-hop culture to a larger audience.”
PODCASTONE Executive Vice President of Content Development MIKE AUGUST said, “We are very excited to have one of the Oscar nominated writers of STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON in the person of LEIGH SAVIDGE joining our PODCASTONE family with never-before-heard interviews with the artists, producers and promoters that both created and drive the hip-hop music business to this day.”
