A new talk-show featuring three generations of women sharing their views on the day’s most talked about issues would be interesting anyway, but when these three women are Jada Pinket-Smith, her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris and her daughter, Willow Smith, then you know it’s going to be good.
The 10-episode series, to be shown on Facebook’s video platform Facebook Watch, will see the women joined by friends and celebrity guests as they discuss topics close to their heart.
Speaking about the series, via Shadow and Act, Jada said: “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.”
“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.”
So, what the format of each episode? Every Monday, Pinkett Smith will introduce the week’s topic; viewers will then post comments and share their personal stories on Facebook. On Wednesday of that week, 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.
Everyone has an opinion about something, and often our views are influenced by our experiences
and upbringing. It will be interesting to see the similarities or differences among these three women from the same family, but very different generations.
Highlighting the importance of sharing and giving everyone a voice, Willow said: “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.”
“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.”
