Jada Pinkett Smith, daughter Willow Smith and mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris invite viewers into their home for Red Table Talk, a series of groundbreaking, intimate, and candid conversations. The new weekly format brings together three generations of women with three very different viewpoints, as they reveal their personal experiences and thoughts about today’s most compelling issues. Red Table Talk will premiere on Facebook’s video platform, Facebook Watch, on Monday, May 7.
Throughout the 10-episode series, Jada, Willow and Adrienne will be joined by celebrity guests and friends as they explore social issues and topics that have touched the family. “I’ve done a lot of sharing and growing on Facebook. Being able to engage with the Facebook Watch community in such a deeply personal way is amazing, and I’m excited to be part of something new,” said Jada Pinkett Smith. “Red Table Talk is about raw truth, love and deep passion. My mother is old school, Willow is new school, and I find myself right in the middle.”
Members of the Facebook community will be invited to participate in the conversation as it plays out over the course of each week. On Mondays, Pinkett Smith will introduce the week’s topic; viewers will post comments and share their personal stories on Facebook; and on Wednesdays, the show will stream Live on Facebook Watch from the Smith home, where the women will answer fan questions and open the conversation to the community.
“As a 17-year-old, it’s important for me to be able to talk openly about what’s going on in my life…there have been too many times I have felt alone,” said Willow Smith. “I feel like the only real valuable thing in life is sharing what we’ve gone through. Conversation, storytelling, pain, pleasure, joy, happiness and communicating that to each other is all that life really is. And for real, we put it #AllOnTheTable.”
Joining Pinkett Smith to executive produce the series are Ellen Rakieten (“The Oprah Winfrey Show”) and Miguel Melendez.
“We are so excited and honored to be working with Facebook Watch on this very innovative series,” said Rakieten. “These three exceptional women, Jada, Willow and Ms. Adrienne, will blow you away with their honesty and passion. It’s truly like nothing we have ever seen before, absolutely next level.”
