Exhale

Unfortunately, my cable provider doesn't carry ASPiRE, so I didn't get to see the new network's new talk show, Exhale - hosted by Angela Burt-MurrayErin Jackson, Issa RaeMalinda Williams and Rene Syler - last night, when it made its broadcast debut.

I was hoping the episode would be available on ASPiRE's website today, but it doesn't look like it will be.

Did you tune in last night? If so, your thoughts? Reactions? Etc?

Exhale, which is ASPiRE’s 3rd original series, is directed by Victoria Mahoney, and produced by Lynne Robinson and Black Robin Media.

 

The 8-episode summer run has officially begun.

ASPiRE, launched in June 2012, was selected by Comcast from among over 100 candidates as one of four new minority-owned independent TV networks, and expectations are that the new network will be available in 20 to 30 million homes by the end of this year.
