The talk show is described as a series of groundbreaking, intimate and candid conversations. The weekly format brings together three generations of women with three very different viewpoints as they reveal their personal experiences and thoughts about today's most compelling issues. Red Table Talk will premiere on Facebook's video platform, Facebook Watch, on Monday, May 7.
In the ten-episode series, Jada, Willow and Adrienne will be joined by friends and celebrity guests as they explore social issues and topics that have touched the family.
"I've done a lot of sharing and growing on Facebook. Being able to engage with the Facebook Watch community in such a deeply personal way is amazing, and I'm excited to be part of something new," said Jada Pinkett Smith. "Red Table Talk is about raw truth, love and deep passion. My mother is old school, Willow is new school, and I find myself right in the middle."
The episodes will follow this format: On Mondays, Pinkett Smith will introduce the week’s topic; viewers will post comments and share their personal stories on Facebook; and on Wednesdays, the show will stream live on Facebook Watch from the Smith home, where the women will answer fan questions and open the conversation to the community.
“As a 17-year-old, it’s important for me to be able to talk openly about what’s going on in my life...there have been too many times I have felt alone,” said Willow Smith. “I feel like the only real valuable thing in life is sharing what we've gone through. Conversation, storytelling, pain, pleasure, joy, happiness and communicating that to each other is all that life really is. And for real, we put it #AllOnTheTable.”
Pinkett Smith executive produces the series with Ellen Rakieten (The Oprah Winfrey Show) and Miguel Melendez.
