Chicken Soup for the Soul Studios has picked up two new shows, including a new wedding talk show hosted by Olympic figure skater Tara Lipinski, and renewed Joe Morton’s Crackle series “Inside the Black Box” for a second season, Variety has learned exclusively.
Created in collaboration with wedding-centric media company Love Stories TV, Lipinski’s series is titled “Wedding Talk” and includes event planner José Rolón and wedding designer Jove Meyer as her co-hosts. Chicken Soup for the Soul Studios, the production arm of Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment, has also picked up “World’s Best Wedding,” another Love Stories TV-backed reality show that follows couples from different cultures, background and orientations as they tie the knot.
“Inside the Black Box,” which debuted its first season on Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment’s streamer Crackle, is hosted by “Scandal” alum Joe Morton and Tracey Moore and centers on the experiences of artists of color.
While “Inside the Black Box” Season 2 will launch directly on Crackle, “Wedding Talk” and “World’s Best Wedding” will first air on the Chicken Soup for the Soul AVOD platform and then debut on Crackle later in Q4 and 2023.
“We have a solid lineup of programming coming from Chicken Soup for the Soul Studios that includes three avant-garde series, each with its own original and compelling story that gives viewers drama, love, laughter and possibly even a good cry,” Chicken Soup for the Soul TV Group’s chief executive officer David Ellender said.
