The Big Money Players Network will premiere 10 new comedy podcasts over the next two years.
Will Ferrell is bringing even more of his brand of comedy to iHeartMedia.
On Tuesday (October 15), the audio company announced it has partnered with the comedic actor on a new podcast company dubbed The Big Money Players Network, which will recruit top comedic talent and “curate a variety of formats and styles” -- both scripted and unscripted -- in the podcast medium. Ferrell's Ron Burgundy Podcast launched on the service in February.
“Will Ferrell is one of the greatest comedians of our lifetime, and the unique synergy between Will and iHeartMedia will continue to lead us in accomplishing even more great audio content together,” said iHeartPodcast Network president Conal Byrne in a statement. “We’ve worked extremely close with Will over the past year and our listeners love what we’ve offered them so far. The creative opportunities that an iHeart and Will Ferrell collaboration offer are limitless, and we can’t wait to introduce fresh, hilarious, new content to listeners.”
