The six-episode series, titled "Rebel Robin: Surviving Hawkins", will also star Sean Maher, and is described as "the first Stranger Things podcast and the monster you didn't see coming."
An official description of "Rebel Robin" reads, "Robin's favourite teacher, Mr. Hauser, offers his classroom if she ever needs a quiet place to eat lunch away from the stress of school. Over the next few months, Robin and Hauser meet regularly to discuss philosophy, books, friendship, independence and the disturbing number of Tom Cruise movies in 1983."
"A coming of age story about the struggle of being different in a small town, Surviving Hawkins explores how learning to be ourselves is truly the bravest thing we can do, because it brings out the scariest monster of all: the judgement of other people."
The first episode of the podcast will be released on 29 June (21), with new episodes dropping weekly, while a companion novel about Robin - penned by A.R. Capetta - will drop the same day.
Meanwhile, Alfred Molina has become the latest actor to sign up to play Agatha Christie's beloved sleuth, Hercule Poirot.
The "Frida" star will lead the cast of L.A. Theatre Works' new stage production of "The Murder on the Links".
The cast also includes Simon Helberg, Adhir Kalyan, Kevin Daniels, and Joanne Whalley.
The world premiere of "The Murder on the Links" will be released as a state-of-the-art audio recording on 1 July (21), and digital downloads can be reserved now here: latw.org/digital-season.
