The Roku Channel Launches a New Talk Show with Maker’s Mark

Roku has teamed up with Maker’s Mark Bourbon for a new talk show, “The Show Next Door.” The weekly show will be hosted by Randall Park who will be joined by actors, athletes, and musicians each week for conversation, games, and a few laughs.

“I always wondered what it would be like to host a talk show, and now I know – it’s super fun.” said Randall Park, host of The Show Next Door. “I had a great time building this show with Roku and Maker’s Mark, and I’m excited it’s now available for everyone to enjoy!”

The episodes will take place in Randall’s “living room” where he’ll start by making a cocktail, making the intro of the show into an ad for Maker’s Mark that the bourbon maker and Roku hope will feel less like an ad and more like an interactive experience where the at home (and over 21) audience can feel like they’re having a quick drink with a famous friend.

“The Show Next Door” is the embodiment of what we call Maker’s Hour – the much-deserved time you decide to make for yourself,” said KK Hall, Global Senior Marketing Director for Maker’s Mark. “We turned to the Roku Brand Studio because we want to go beyond the traditional ad experience on the largest screen in the home. Together we developed an entertaining and clever show with a splash of spirit as audiences transition from “working at home” to “being at home.”

Season One guests include Tony Hale, Terrell Owens, Fortune Feimster, Jason Mraz, Mark Duplass, and Gina Yashere, among many others.

The first two episodes of the show start streaming today on The Roku Channel.
