Batman:  The Audio Adventures

With a sensational pageant of technicolor villainy unlike any other on Earth, there will be Mafioso Penguins; Thieving Catwomen; Terrorist Riddlers; Killing Jokers… all in a city where some problems can only be solved by a billionaire in a bat costume.Starring Jeffrey Wright as Batman, Rosario Dawson as Catwoman, John Leguizamo as the Riddler, and a who’s who of incredible “Saturday Night Live” alumni, the series draws inspiration from the vintage noir atmosphere of the celebrated “Batman: The Animated Series,” the spirited fun of the classic 1960s “Batman” TV series, and the entire 80-plus year history of the franchise. It’s coming exclusively this autumn.

Doing more with Audacy

HBO Max has worked with Audacy’s Pineapple Street Studios since the inception of its podcast program, producing successful companion podcasts such as the Webby Award-winning podcasts Lovecraft Country Radio,” and The Chernobyl Podcast,” which has been listened to over 13 million times. The increased investment will include brand podcasts like the recently launched, “Trade Secrets,” that presents intimate conversations between actors, writers, directors, and more as they talk about their craft and life adventures, and an upcoming pod that explores HBO’s award-winning documentaries.
