Spotify has signed a deal with Kim Kardashian West for an exclusive podcast that focuses on a case involving criminal-justice reform, Variety reported. The deal was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
A Spotify spokesman confirmed the company’s deal with Kardashian West and TV producer Lori Rothschild Ansaldi for the podcast, to be made available exclusively on the Spotify platform. Kardashian West and Rothschild Ansaldi will co-host and co-produce the show with Spotify’s Parcast Studio.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the podcast series will follow Rothschild Ansaldi’s investigation of the case of Kevin Keith, who was convicted of three murders in 1994 and was sentenced to execution in Ohio. In 2010, then Governor of Ohio Ted Strickland commuted Keith’s death sentence after new evidence presented by his attorneys raised doubts about his guilt.
BET reported that, according to the Wall Street Journal, the podcast will be focused around the work that Kim Kardashian West has done with the Innocence Project, a nonprofit organization that works to exonerate wrongly convicted individuals.
