Reality shows have long been the domain of television, but one podcast called The Brights is ready to tackle the genre. British TV personality and fashion designer Lydia Bright is releasing a weekly program that may be the first structured reality show podcast. Episodes will get into the ups and downs of the whole Bright family of two parents and four siblings. The first season will include 12 episodes, all narrated by Lydia Bright, covering the family members’ lives.
“All the Bright family and I are really excited to be opening our doors to the podcast world,” Lydia Bright said. “We’re crazy, chaotic, noisy and lots of fun and I think listeners will enjoy sharing our ups and downs. I can’t wait to see what people think.”
Acast is hosting the show, which is produced by content agency Somethin’ Else and Insanity Group. “We’re so excited to see the launch of this truly innovative format which is pushing the boundaries of the podcasting medium, and will undoubtedly appeal to the young, diverse podcast audience as well as sponsors and advertisers,” said Acast Global Head of Content Susie Warhurst.
