“I wanted to create a show that would serve as a platform for young voices in today’s evolving culture,” said Harris. “There is nothing out there like this show and I know The Mix will fill that void.”
“The Mix is such a breath of fresh air in the talk space. Young voices are the future, and right now you won’t find any other talk show featuring Black Gen-Z and millennial men and women leading the conversation. I wish there was a show like this when I was 21,” said King.
“The opportunity to bring our idea to life, and working with Tameka and Jill has been a dream come true. It’s finally time for millennials to have a safe space to discuss all things in and for the culture and I am excited to have a seat at this table,” said Peeples.
“As Fox Soul becomes the premiere destination for black culture content, we found an immediate need for our young people to have a platform to discuss real issues; in a open format, with some of today’s hottest celebrities and some of the cultures most pivotal activists”, Fox Soul Head of Programming, James DuBose said.
Fox Soul, a free, ad-supported streaming network, was launched this year as a strategic effort by Fox to extend the audience for its stable of syndicated TV series. Original programming will be followed by two hours of Fox TV’s locally produced programming. Fox Soul is available via iOS, Android, Apple TV, FireTV, YouTube/FoxSoul, Samsung Plus, Fox Now, Roku, Tubi, Xumo, CaffeineTV or on the web at foxsoul.tv.
