At just 15, young mogul, Marsai Martin is adding “host” to her resume.
Known for her breakout role as Diane in black-ish, the young star is set to host her own talk show, Tiny Talk Show, for Quibi. And when we say “tiny”, the show means that literally.
According to a statement released by the network, Martin will “ask the big questions and steer us through this new world as we discover sometimes the littlest voices are the loudest.”
She will do this on a set that is one-sixth scale of an actual set which reflects the mission of the show itself: intimate, revealing, and devoted to subjects with a lot to say.”
Aside from hosting this show, Martin will also serve as an executive producer.
She will do this through her Genius Entertainment, alongside her parents Josh and Carol.
Michelle Caputo and Shannon Hartman for Art & Industry, Alex Diaz, Daryn Carp and Nicole Dow will serve as producers.
Martin hosting Quibi’s Tiny Talk Show is another build to her Hollywood credits. Last year she became the youngest executive producer of a major film with her comedy Little. Issa Rae and Regina Hall starred in the film that Martin conceptualized, pitched and also starred in.
She also inked an overall deal with Universal with her Genius Productions which uplifts diverse and young voices. She’s also a seven-time NAACP Image Award and two time BET Award winner. She won for her role as Diane Johnson on ABC’s Black-ish.
