Venk Potula

Race, Sex, and Hollywood Collide In New Scripted Comedy Podcast Masala Jones

PRESS RELEASE — March 8, 2019 · 1.2 minutes to read

Khrisp Audio is proud to announce the upcoming launch of its first-ever podcast: Masala Jones, an original scripted comedy created by Venk Potula and Leland Frankel, the first season of which will be available on Apple Podcasts starting March 10th, 2019.

Masala Jones is the first-ever Asian-American scripted podcast, and touches on themes of race, representation, and sex positivity - always with a dose of twisted humor. It’s the perfect narrative podcast for fans of Insecure, Fresh Off The Boat, and Master of None.

When naive med school drop-out Samar Rajamouli decides to pursue his secret dream of becoming an adult film actor, he discovers an industry filled with peculiar customs, idiosyncratic characters, and unfortunately familiar prejudices. As if that wasn’t enough, he also finds himself playing referee for his immigrant parents as their marriage threatens to fall apart. Becoming the first Asian-American male porn star will be a lot harder than anybody could have guessed, but on his journey to the big time, Samar just might start a revolution…or ruin his life.

The six-episode first season of Masala Jones features a cast of diverse performers, including:

VENK POTULA (Veep, Wild N’ Out)

ESTHER KU (Girl Code, Last Comic Standing)

TIMOTHY STACK (My Name Is Earl, Seinfeld)

RAVI KAPOOR (Crossing Jordan, NCIS)

MEERA SIMHAN (Anger Management, How To Get Away With Murder)

JAMES ALLEN MCCUNE (The Walking Dead, Shameless, Blair Witch)

CHRISTOS VASILOPOULOS (Banshee, Blindspot)

AMEN IGBINOSUN (The Last Ship, Texas Rising)

ARNOLD CHUN (The Man In The High Castle, Rampage)

and award-winning adult film actresses AURORA SNOW and RILEY NIXON

Season One will be available on Apple Podcasts March 10th, 2019, where its trailer is already streaming.
