Snoop Dogg, the doggfather of rap, will be one of the first guests on Michael Strahan’s new digital series “Close Talker,” set to premiere later this month. Other guests to be featured in the short-form show include Adam Rodriguez (“CSI Miami”), Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”), and Rob Riggle (“21 Jump Street”).
In the four-episode series, Strahan, who hosts ABC’s “The 100K Pyramid,” takes interviewing to an awkwardly close level, getting up close and in the personal space of his guests by talking at an unreasonably close distance.
“I was thinking about something that makes everyone feel uncomfortable, and for me it’s when someone is a close talker,” said Strahan, who filmed the interviews during season 3 of “The 100K Pyramid.” “The point of the series is to show fans how much fun we have backstage when shooting ‘The $100K Pyramid.’ So we’ve turned the cameras back on so we can give people a chance to see for themselves.”
Starting June 21, every Friday a new episode of the series will premiere across Strahan’s Facebook, YouTube, and IGTV profiles, with new updates and episode announcements posting on his Twitter page.
“Let’s just leave it at this,” said Strahan when asked what he had planned for his guests, “Snoop Dogg will be selling a Michael Strahan dental kit, and none of the guests knew what they were getting themselves into when they walked into the ‘Close Talker’ room!”
