iHeartMedia and Masterworked Media creators Ryan Martz and Oliver Vaquer team to bring season two of "The Angel of Vine," a scripted mystery podcast starring Joe Manganiello, Constance Zimmer and Alfred Molina to the iHeartPodcast Network in Spring 2020. "The Angel of Vine" tells the story of a present-day journalist who uncovers the audio tapes of a 1950s private investigator, voiced by Joe Manganiello. Season two will pick up where season one left off, bringing listeners back in time to 1959, Palm Springs, CA.
"I absolutely cannot wait to dust off Hank's recorder and reunite with the Angel of Vine team to see what twisted mayhem Oliver and Ryan have in store for us for season two," said Manganiello. "I loved working on season one and was thrilled by the overwhelmingly positive response and hunger for more adventures in this rich and addictive world."
"The Angel of Vine" features the one of the largest celebrity casts in an audio drama to date and since its season one launch, has attracted an impressive fan base that has attributed to its more than one million downloads. In season two, actors Kevin Pollak and Patton Oswalt will join the star-studded cast. The first season included actors Joe Manganiello, Alan Tudyk, Alfred Molina, Constance Zimmer, Khary Payton, Mike Colter, Misha Collins, Cree Summer, Oliver Vaquer and Camilla Luddington -- many of which will return for season two.
"We wanted to make a scripted podcast that was engaging and entertaining," said Masterworked Media co-founder Ryan Martz. "We collaborated with an ensemble of incredibly talented actors and sound designers to make that possible. It was also important to us to make it appealing to the non-fiction listeners in a format that they'd recognize. After launching ‘The Angel of Vine' independently, we're thrilled to join the iHeartPodcast family for our second season."
"Working with the Masterworked team on 'The Angel of Vine' is incredibly exciting for me as a fan of great stories," added iHeartMedia Podcast Lead Executive Producer Holly Frey. "In a time when true crime is all the rage in podcasting, they take that idea in a new direction through fiction to craft a finely tuned narrative that is scary and revelatory, but always engaging and one of the best scripted podcasts in the industry. The cast is spectacular, and the podcast has gained a massive following because of their performances and the show's haunting story - it's something that people want to binge."
