Fans may be saying goodbye to Quinn Perkins when “Scandal” wraps its final season next month, but her real-life counterpart Katie Lowes is remaining a resident of Shondaland for the foreseeable future. However, this time the TGIT actress isn’t starring in a Shonda Rhimes’ series but is hosting the production company’s first-ever podcast.
“That’s right! I get to stay in Shondaland for ‘Katie’s Crib’ which is the best!” Lowes told People Thursday. The show will be mommy-centric.
“This whole thing of motherhood is insane. It’s a rollercoaster, which I love because the Shondaland logo is a rollercoaster. That’s basically how I feel every day,” Lowes joked.
The actress and husband Adam Shapiro welcomed their first child, son Albee, in October 2017.
“Shondaland approached me about it actually,” Lowes added. “They came to me and thought, ‘I feel like you’re going through this huge thing called motherhood and there are probably a lot of people that would benefit going through this stuff with you.’ It’s been amazing.”
The weekly podcast will feature fellow celebrity moms like Kristen Bell, Casey Wilson, Jennifer Finnigan, Angelique Cabral and June Diane Raphael.
In May, Shondaland executive producer Betsy Beers will also launch a podcast, called “Geri and Milli.” The series will navigate the generational gap between Beers (she calls herself “geriatric”) and her millennial guests with a humorous take. Beers and her guests will discuss cultural moments and how they’ve shaped each of their lives.
Both pods will be available on iTunes and other platforms, as well as on the Shondaland.com website. You can go ahead and subscribe to “Katie’s Crib” on iTunes now.
The final season of “Scandal” airs Thursdays at 10/9 c on ABC.
