November 22, 2016 at 8:58 AM (PT)
FIRST LOOK MEDIA is launching a new podcast with Irish comedian MAEVE HIGGINS, now based in NEW YORK. "MAEVE IN AMERICA," featuring HIGGINS' observations as a new arrival to AMERICA, debuts TODAY and is being distributed by PANOPLY.
“We are incredibly excited to be working with MAEVE on this podcast,” said FIRST LOOK SVP/Programming LISA LEINGANG. “Not only is she a delightful performer and a wonderful storyteller, but MAEVE has experienced first-hand what it’s like to relocate to AMERICA. We’re psyched for her to shine as the (multi)-national treasure that she is.”
HIGGINS said, “I am so hyped for everyone to hear my new podcast about the American immigrant experience that I've even started to use the word hyped. I've been obsessed with immigration since I moved from IRELAND to ZIMBABWE as a nine-year-old (don't worry, my parents came too). Now I live in the US and am grateful to the brilliantly creative folks at FIRST LOOK MEDIA for partnering with me to share these stories. Plus, I get to fulfill my work visa requirements!”
