Roku and Maker’s Mark is also hoping to take viewers out of the thirty-second ad viewing and turn watching sponsored content into an experience. “Our partnership with Maker’s Mark is innovating how brands meet consumers today as they shift away from traditional television to streaming,” said Brian Toombs, Head of Content at Roku Brand Studio.
The prepared statement also says that “The show’s focus is based in consumer insight — comedy content has performed particularly well on The Roku Channel. In the first quarter of 2021, Roku saw streaming hours for Comedy content grow 798% on The Roku Channel compared to the first quarter of 2020.”
Each episode will occur in Randall’s “living room” and will start with Randall crafting a cocktail during his opening monologue. Some of the Season One guests include Tony Hale, Terrell Owens, Fortune Feimster, Jason Mraz, Mark Duplass, and Gina Yashere.
“I always wondered what it would be like to host a talk show, and now I know – it’s super fun,” said Randall Park, host of “The Show Next Door.” “I had a great time building this show with Roku and Maker’s Mark, and I’m excited it’s now available for everyone to enjoy!”
