network begins production on 'Exhale,' its first original weekly talk
(April 29, 2013) The ASPiRE cable network has started production in Los
Angeles on its new original weekly talk series, "Exhale." The weekly
show will be hosted by journalist and media maven Angela Burt-Murray;
actress and comedian Erin Jackson; director, writer and actress Issa
Rae; blogger, author and TV anchor Rene Syler; and actress Malinda
Williams. The eight-episode series will premiere in June to coincide
with the one-year anniversary of the ASPiRE network's launch.
"We are thrilled to add 'Exhale' to our lineup of original programming,"
said ASPiRE General Manager Paul Butler. "This fresh, hip and candid new
series will enlighten audiences with its broad range of topics relevant
to the community. We hope that viewers will be inspired, informed and
entertained by our funny and opinionated hosts sharing absolutely
everything with each other."
Shot on location, "Exhale" will provide a fresh perspective on topics
that are relevant and evergreen in the lives of African-American women.
ASPiRE and the hosts will use digital and social media to further
connect, engage and continue dynamic, nimble dialogue with the audience.

Lynne Robinson, producer. "In each episode, they will share intimate,
spirited and honest dialogue to make you laugh and sometimes make you
cry. We are thrilled to bring these provocative, enlightening
conversations with these dynamic women in a compelling new series to
life on ASPiRE."
