Laverne Cox Partnered with Shonda Rhimes to Launch New Podcast Series


Emmy-nominated actress Laverne Cox partnered with Shondaland Audio and iHeatMedia to launch her very own podcast.

“The Laverne Cox Show” (working title) will highlight “intimated conversations with guests who provoke thought and potentially new outlooks. The show was created in hopes that it may foster perspectives that might inspire new behavior in each of us, to in turn get us closer to becoming the very best versions of ourselves, all the while inviting Laverne, guests, and listeners to undergo a spiritual makeover together.”

Shondaland Chief Design and Digital Media Officer Sandie Bailey spoke highly about Cox.

“Laverne Cox is a one-of-a-kind talent and we are so excited that our Shondaland Audio division provides us the opportunity to continue our relationship with her,” says Bailey. “We all know her onscreen talents and her role as a producer, but this show affords Laverne the opportunity to produce something very personal.”

Cox echoed her excitement.

“I’m thrilled to be continuing and expanding my relationship with Shondaland by doing my first podcast with Shonda’s amazing team along with iHeartRadio,” Cox says. “I can’t wait for everyone to hear the incredibly interesting conversations I have had with my guests.”

This is not the first project Shonda Rhimes and the actress will be working on together. Cox will star in the upcoming Netflix series, “Inventing Anna.” The series, created by Rhimes, will follow the investigation of German heiress and con artist Anna Delvy.

Cox will play Kacy Duke, a celebrity trainer and life coach who becomes involved in the scandal.

The podcast is the latest of Shondaland and iHeartMedia’s slew of podcasts.

“The Lavern Cox Show” is will make it’s debut in February 2021.
