Jaleel White’s podcast, Ever After, is getting a TV adaptation! Audio Up Media and the streaming service Topic are producing a 30-minute pilot for it.
In Ever After the series, “White will reminisce on his early days in the industry, and give viewers a unique insight into what life was like after the iconic run as Urkel ended. The show will look back fondly on White’s early to mid-90’s fame, as he shares the microphone with an array of fellow child star guests, to discuss how their paths diverged from their early days of fame.”
“The 90's were a decade where pop culture took flight and were defined by some truly iconic moments that make us more nostalgic than ever. It was also the decade of sitcoms where many child actors got their start,” said White. “Philip Alberstat, my producing partner, and I thought it would be exciting to create a show where we would reach out to some of TV's most famous child actors and see where they are now, how they dealt with fame, growing up famous and what the future holds for them. The podcast series enabled us to have deep, meaningful conversations with many actors and now we are even more excited to have a TV pilot ready for viewing.”
“Jaleel and I felt strongly that audiences were yearning for 90's nostalgia,” said Alberstat. “His status as a child star and television icon gave him the credibility to ask our guests tough questions and explore what fame does to kids who were famous during the 90's. We are very excited to have a successful podcast series now move to the television space"
The show will shoot around LA with a tentative pilot release date of August 26 on Topic. Nearly a week later on September 1, the pilot will release on all social media platforms. Brian Austin Green will be the first guest.
The show has White serving as producer along with Philip Alberstat, Alfredo De Villa, Jared Gustadt of Audio Up. Ryan Chanatry and Debbie De Montreux of Topic serve as producers as well.
White, of course, is best known Steve Urkel, on the 90’s sitcom Family Matters.
