'The Read With Kid Fury And Crissle West' Teaser: Podcast Duo Jumps To Television In Fuse's Late-Night Talk/Variety Show

September 27th 2019

With its premiere right around the corner, Fuse has released the first promo for The Read With Kid Fury And Crissle West.

The show will debut on October 11.

The project was first announced in March. The show has a first season order of ten, 30-minute episodes. The official description reads: Inspired by their juggernaut podcast, with more than 85 million listens worldwide and 1.5 million unique listens a month – Kid Fury and Crissle host this talk/variety format that carries over their beloved segments like Hot Tops and The Read, while additionally featuring a special celebrity and/or musician guest. The duo uses their sharp, honest brand of cultural commentary and perceptive opinions to drill deep into the roots of the issues and stories affecting their millennial and Gen Z peers, from social justice and politics to dating and music culture, and everything in between.

From Avalon Television, Chloe Pisello, David Martin, Jon Thoday, and Richard Allen-Turner will executive produce alongside Kid Fury (whose real name is Gregory A. Smith), Crissle West and Alexandra Rago.

Fury is also currently developing a dark comedy series at HBO about a Black gay man navigating adulthood. Lena Waithe is executive producing that project.
