NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, comedy podcast network Headgum announced the launch of Headgum Studios, an expansion of the existing network that now provides full-service podcast production. Headgum Studios launches a slate of seven new programs – Headgum Originals – targeted to today's discerning comedy fans and podcast listeners.
Launched in 2015, Headgum grew out of founders Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld's popular podcast, If I Were You. A mark of exponential growth, in 2019 the network received an average of 10MM monthly listens network-wide.
Said Amir Blumenfeld, "Since the formation of the network, Jake and I have gotten to work with some incredibly talented people. The opportunity to amplify these voices is driving Headgum Studios. Headgum Originals deliver on our goal to create comedy podcasts that fans will love...and our enemies will hate."
Headgum Studios is a fully-owned production division of the Headgum network, with studios in LA and NY. It will produce Originals and collaborate with publishers to develop entertaining, results-driven content (like a recent campaign promoting Netflix's Always Be My Maybe). Headgum will continue to produce and support existing award-winning shows including Doughboys and Why Won't You Date Me.
Connor Ratliff sets out to solve the mystery of why Tom Hanks fired him from a small role in the HBO miniseries Band Of Brothers. Guests include Jon Hamm, Zach Cherry, Aimee Mann, Rian Johnson. Listen
