The Gray Area with Charlamagne Tha God, is an HBO series of four interview specials that will be hosted by the broadcast personality and New York Times bestselling author, reports Variety. The show will consist of hourlong specials with the first to premiere later this year.
“Charlamagne brings a provocative, thoughtful and always honest voice to all of his interviews,” said Nina Rosentein, the executive vice president of HBO Programming. “We think these specials will be surprising and enlightening and we look forward to seeing who he brings to the table.”
The Breakfast Club co-host will serve as the executive producer on the show along with Emmy Award-winning producer Karen Kinney.
“I feel extremely blessed to be able to announce my official partnership with HBO on a new conversation series which will provide a safe space for ‘unsafe’ people to curate their stories and control their own narratives,” said Charlamagne. “The reality is when it comes to people’s stories, it’s not black or white, it’s always an area that’s a shade of gray, and that’s usually where the lies end and the truth begins, and this show will give those people an opportunity to share their truth. Thank you to my new television home, HBO and all praise is due to god!”
Charlamagne’s second book, Shook Ones: Anxiety Playing Tricks on Me, will be released on October 23.
