The WONDERY podcast network founded recently by former FOX INTERNATIONAL CHANNELS President HERNAN LOPEZ has added three new shows, all radio dramas, to its lineup. The shows include "RUBY: ADVENTURES OF A GALACTIC GUMSHOE," produced by THOMAS LOPEZ's ZBS; and "RADIO DRAMA REVIVAL" and "THE CLEANSED," both produced by FRED GREENHALGH of FINALRUNE PRODUCTIONS.
"Those of us who have been passionately, patiently creating great audio drama have been on a wild ride these last 5 years as this medium we love so much has really caught on," GREENHALGH said, "In the post-SERIAL era, it's become clear that audio fiction is a form of entertainment to take as seriously as its non-fiction audio counterparts. The partnership with WONDERY will give FINALRUNE the opportunity to further our idea that audio stories with a movie-like feel and production quality will catch on with a mainstream audience. After all, no matter what CGI can do, the biggest multiplex is the theater of your mind."
WONDERY President of Content JEFFREY GLASER said, "THOMAS LOPEZ and FRED GREENHALGH are two of the most prolific and talented producers of audio drama in the U.S., and we share a passion for telling stories with dialogue and sound. As we get ready to launch our first original show later this year, we are delighted to bring RADIO DRAMA REVIVAL, THE CLEANSED and RUBY to new listeners and advertisers starting today."
