Jada Pinkett Smith’s new show ‘Red Table Talk’ premieres on Facebook Watch Monday, May 7. The 10-episode show focuses on three generations of women—Pinkett-Smith; daughter, Willow and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris. The concept for the show came from Pinkett-Smith’s candid discussions on social media. “I started having real conversations on Facebook on my own page that were very close to a lot of the topics that we’re dealing with. It was such a beautiful camaraderie that I created through my own Facebook page and I feel like during this time, we’re all going through so much and life is getting more complex because times are changing so quickly and things are shifting so fast, and I felt like creating a safe space where we could come have unfiltered, honest conversations, where we can take our masks off and let go of all those personas that we created to just have real honest conversations about how we’re feeling.”
Topics of conversation on the show cover everything from sex, self-images and relationships. Viewers can tune in to see appearances by Tiffany Haddish, Gabrielle Union and Sheree Zampino, ex-wife of Will Smith. The latter, shows the dynamic of two women who privately co-parented Zampino’s only child by Smith, Trey, 25. The clip shown ahead of the show’s debut is of Pinkett-Smith and Zampino reflecting on one of their earlier encounters with each other. Smith, even got in on it by posting a message to his Instagram page. I’ve got a Riddle for Y’all…If your Wife sits down to talk to your Ex-Wife in a forest and you’re not there… are you still in trouble? 🙂
While laughter is definitely part of the equation, Pinkett-Smith says, “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.”
Fans can see new episodes on Facebook Watch here. You can also tune in on Wednesdays starting May 9 for a Facebook Live with Jada, Willow, and Adrienne.
