I guess Will Ferrell got jealous of all the attention Mr. Ron Burgendy was getting with his new podcast. So he had to one up him by launching an entire podcast network!
Variety announced today that Ferrell has joined up with iHeartMedia to create Big Money Players Network. The content on BMPN is to be mainly comedy based, naturally. The plan is for 10 podcasts to be rolled out within the next 24 months, beginning in 2020. That’s a lot of content!
Ferrell commented “The iHeartPodcast Network has been such a pleasure to work with. I love hanging out in the offices and I’ve only been yelled at once for using someone’s computer, which I shouldn’t have done.” Luckily for Ferrell, podcasts can be streamed directly to your phone with no computer access necessary.
“We’ve worked extremely close with Will over the past year and our listeners love what we’ve offered them so far,” Conal Byrne, president of the iHeartPodcast Network. “The creative opportunities that an iHeart and Will Ferrell collaboration offer are limitless.”
Whatever the podcasts wind up being, we can only hope one of them is Buddy the Elf’s Favorite Colors.
