Wondery was founded earlier this year by Hernan Lopez, the former CEO of Fox International Channels. In March, Wondery added some staff. Recently, Wondery has added three more podcasts to its network.
In March of 2016, Jeffery Glaser joined Wondery as president of content. (Previously, he was the head of current programing at 20th Century Fox Television.) Christina Haro was appointed as account executive, brand solutions, at Wondery that same month. The original plan was for Wondery to begin releasing its first batch of shows by summer of 2016.
The newly added shows are:
Ruby: The Adventures of a Galactic Gumshoe was created by audio drama pioneer Thomas Lopez of ZBS. Ruby is a “smart, tough, sexy detective” that has been hired to track down the malefactors who are manipulating the media on planet Summa Nulla.
Radio Drama Revival is hosted by David Rheinstrom and produced twice a month. Radio Drama Revival showcases a piece of top-quality audio fiction made by independent and professional producers alike. It covers a variety of genres “from historical epics, to science fiction, from spine-tingling horror and suspense, to wacky situation comedies, from intimate dramas to experimental sound art.”
The Cleansed is described as: “Equal parts “Mad Max” and “The Stand”, this post apocalyptic saga is set in a world 15 years after the collapse of the world as we know it.” It is an epic serialized audio drama adventure with 30+ actors, cinematic sound design, and original music.
Those three shows join with the three that had previously been added to the Wondery network. Real Crime Profile focuses on profiling the behavior of people from real criminal cases. Mad About Movies is described as “your go-to podcast for all things cinema”. Thirty Twenty Ten is a pop culture time machine that examines TV, movies, music, and video games from the 80s, 90s, and 2000s
