Charlamagne Tha God’s candid approach to radio has earned him his own show on HBO.
Power 105’s The Breakfast Club co-host has landed himself on HBO for his upcoming television show entitled The Gray Area, which is produced by Karen Kinney and Charlemagne himself.
The South Carolina-bred radio personality is set to debut his show this year, which will feature four interview specials. No other information has been given about the show’s content.
Charlemagne praised his new partnership with HBO, saying that his series, as the title implies, isn’t just about Black or white issues.
“I feel extremely blessed to be able to announce my official partnership with HBO on a new conversation series which will provide a safe space for ‘unsafe’ people to curate their stories and control their own narratives,” Charlemagne asserts. “The reality is, when it comes to people’s stories, it’s not black or white, it’s always an area that’s a shade of gray and that’s usually where the lies end and the truth begins, and this show will give those people an opportunity to share their truth.”
As expected, the team from the Home Box Office is just as excited about bringing The God on board as he is about being recruited.
“Charlamagne brings a provocative, thoughtful and always honest voice to all of his interviews,” EVP HBO Programming Nina Rosenstein says. “We think these specials will be surprising and enlightening and we look forward to seeing who he brings to the table.”
