Lisa Rookes on the inspiration behind The Gallows Tree
Spotify have today announced their latest Spotify Originals podcast His Darker Materials. Produced by Stripped Media, the podcast is the unofficial accompaniment to the BBC’s hotly anticipated His Dark Materials adaptation, and will launch immediately after the show begins, at 9.01pm on Sunday 3rd November.
Hosts David Corkery (of The Wire Stripped podcast) and Helen O’Hara (of Empire Film’s podcast) will examine the world of the TV show in depth, treating listeners to behind the scenes info and exclusive interviews with the cast and crew over the course of eight episodes. Special guests include Clarke Peters – The Master himself – who will join for episodes one and two.
This podcast is the first of its kind to be commissioned by Spotify, with James Cator (Spotify’s Head of Partnerships for EMEA) commenting, “from Game of Thrones to Downton Abbey, viewers want to know more about what goes on behind the scenes and learn more about their favourite shows. This entertaining, informal podcast is perfectly suited to providing this.”
Listen to His Darker Materials here from 9.01pm on Sunday 3rd November.
