‘Black-Ish’ star Marsai Martin has been tapped to host her own talk show titled the ‘Tiny Talk Show’ on Quibi.
According to Deadline, the talk show is produced by Art & Industry and is billed as the world’s smallest functional talk show.
The set reportedly will be a one-sixth scale of an actual set that reflects the show’s mission: intimate, revealing, and devoted to subjects with a lot to say.
At just 15 years of age, Martin is already proving to be one of Hollywood’s brightest stars. She has her own production company, Genius Productions, which has already inked a deal with Universal Pictures.
In 2019, she released her movie, “Little” — a modern reworking of the classic 1988 comedy “Big,” which starred Tom Hanks, becoming the youngest ever executive producer of a major Hollywood movie.
Martin’s offering starred actresses Regina Hall and Issa Rae and received critical acclaim.
“My parents would watch movies like Big and Freaky Friday, and I wanted to see that kind of story told from an African-American angle,” Martin recently told InStyle. “So I had the idea for Little, and then I told my parents and we all fleshed it out together. This was at the end of filming season one of Black-ish, and when we were shooting the finale, my dad — who’s also an executive producer — went up to [Black-ish creator] Kenya [Barris] to ask his opinion. He thought it was a dope idea, and we worked on the full-blown idea at a Waffle House or something, eating while we came up with the pitch. The rest is history.”
