iHeartPodcasts and Blumhouse Television announced the launch of a new scripted, thriller podcast, The Mantawauk Caves. The podcast features 3D audio for a binaural listening experience. The first two episodes premiere on March 22, with subsequent episodes debuting weekly. This marks the third co-produced podcast by Blumhouse and iHeart.
The psychological thriller features actor Jonathan Tucker, known for roles in The Virgin Suicides, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Charlie’s Angels, alongside Edi Gathegi, a Kenyan-American actor, who starred in House, Gone Baby Gone, Twilight, and The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Dan Bush writes, directs, and produces.
“Our listeners crave scripted series that take them into an entirely new universe and out of their day-to-day lives. The Mantawauk Caves storyline and listening experience with 3D audio will transport our listeners into a thrilling, and at times frightening, universe” said Will Pearson, President of iHeartPodcasts. “We’re honored to continue our long-standing and fruitful relationship with Blumhouse, and collaborate on a slate of new scripted shows, with The Mantawauk Caves.”
