Martin said in a statement,
“Jada is the brilliant creator and architect of the Red Table universe and I’m thrilled we are working together. As we go forward with sharing part of my story, Jada has the unique perspective of having seen the journey unfold. I can’t think of a better partner.”
Jada Pinkett Smith said of Martin,
“Duane and I have been friends for a long time. It would be an understatement to say how excited myself and the Red Table Talk family are to work with someone as talented as Duane.”
This is the latest deal for Red Table Talk Productions, which has already scored a Daytime Emmy for its Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk.
