“Start Talking” is Complex Network’s latest addition to go90, the Verizon-owned SVOD service. Hosted by comedian Scott Rogowsky, the series is said to turn “the traditional interview on its head when everyday people unexpectedly become late-night show guests, from aspiring actors to potential threesome candidates.”
Rogowsky serves as the middleman between roommate seekers, casting directors and New York City’s finest applicants. The hopefuls, who arrive to a pop-up late-night set expecting an informal meet-up, are instead met with lights, cameras and a head-to-head competition with other candidates.
“My parents always taught me not to talk to strangers. With ‘Start Talking,’ now I’m doing it for a living!” said Rogowsky.
The eight-episode series, which is available starting today, is the latest show to join the slate of Complex Network originals available on go90, which is already home to “QB1: Beyond the Lights” from Peter Berg’s Film45; “Thanksgiving” created by Dan Powell and Bethany Hall and starring Chris Elliott and Amy Sedaris; “Embeds,” from Megyn Kelly, and Michael DeLuca; “Top Grier” starring Hayes Grier; and “Drive Share” created by and starring Paul Scheer and Rob Huebell.
“Start Talking” is produced by ITV Entertainment in association with Big Energy Productions. Serving as executive producers are Mark Efman, David George, Shawn Witt, Jon Murray, Scott Rogowsky, Justin Killion and Brian Silbert.
