Trailblazer Studios is partnering with Made for More Entertainment to co-produce the second season of Post In Black, the podcast and web series that focuses on Black professionals in the entertainment industry.
The Emmy-winning studio will assist with post-production and sound as it looks to expand into the podcast and digital space, with plans to shop the podcast and series for TV.
Created by Made For More Entertainment co-founder Daniel K. Hunter (pictured right) and hosted by co-founder, writer, producer and actor David Hunter Jr. (left), Post In Black‘s second season lineup includes guests such as Darryl Jefferson, VP of post production and digital workflow at NBC Sports; Emmy-nominated editor Daysha Broadway; and Eric Johnson, Trailblazer’s senior VP of sound and engagement.
Johnson said in a statement: “I’m so excited about this series because it gives young people of color an opportunity to see people that look like them working at the highest levels of the industry and it also provides industry veterans with an opportunity to learn of others like themselves. The series is also a fantastic resource for creators, networks, studios, and streaming platforms as they strive to be more inclusive throughout their productions.”
Daniel Hunter added: “Post production is some of the most rewarding and impactful work you can do in entertainment but unfortunately it is constantly overlooked and taken for granted. Post In Black serves as both a showcase and a lighthouse. We want to highlight the incredible work that is currently being done by people of color all over the world and also invite a more diverse group into this space.”
Daniel, David, and Tatiana Johnson are executive producers for Made For More Entertainment. For Trailblazer Studios, Eric Johnson and Aurelia Belfield serve as producers.
Raleigh, North Carolina-based Trailblazer recently produced Nat Geo and Hulu’s Rise Again: Tulsa and the Red Summer and The Legacy of Black Wall Street for OWN and Discovery+.
The company launched its podcast initiative earlier this year with American Sport and entered a television endeavor with Reuters to adapt its investigative series The Body Trade.
