AceShowbiz - Jada Pinkett Smith's "Red Table Talk" is a huge success. It's enough to make Facebook Watch sign a new three-year deal with Pinkett Smith and Westbrook Studios, her company with husband Will Smith.
With the new renewal, the popular Daytime Emmy-nominated talk show, which is hosted by Pinkett Smith, her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris and daughter Willow Smith, will continue streaming on the streaming sites with new episodes through 2022.
In addition to giving renewal to the show, Facebook orders a second series from Pinkett Smith and Westbrook Studios. Titled "Red Table Talk: The Estefans", the new spin-off series will be set in Miami and hosted by Gloria Estefan. Joining her as the co-hosts are her daughter and rising musician Emily Estefan and her niece and Daytime Emmy Award-winning TV host Lili Estefan.
The new project will also feature three women of different generations discussing social and personal issues with family, celebrity guests and experts. "Red Table Talk: The Estefans" sees Pinkett Smith and Gloria Estefan serving as executive producers.
"I'm incredibly proud of 'Red Table Talk', and thrilled to build upon this franchise with my family and with Gloria, Emily and Lili," Pinkett Smith said in a statement. " 'Red Table Talk' has created a space to have open, honest and healing conversations around social and topical issues, and what’s most powerful for me is hearing people's stories and engaging with our fans in such a tangible way on the Facebook Watch platform. I'm excited to see the Estefans put their spin on the franchise and take it to new places."
"I'm incredibly excited to carry the 'Red Table Talk' torch with my family in Miami," added Gloria Estefan (on behalf of Gloria, Emily & Lili). "Jada and I have spoken about this a lot and feel my daughter, niece and I can tackle issues important to us and our fans with a new and fresh voice. Jada has done this incredibly and continues to do with her family in their candid, intimate, and groundbreaking conversations at the iconic Red Table."
Jada shared her excitement for the upcoming spin-off on her Instagram account on Wednesday, January 22. "Red Table Talk: The Estefans Coming at you 2020!!!!" so she wrote alongside a picture of the Estefan ladies. "I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to work with these 3 phenomenal women! I am so happy #RTTEstefans."
