iHeartMedia and Will Packer Media’s Hit Scripted Podcast “The Lower Bottoms” Returns for Season Two with a Star-Studded Cast

Actress Debbie Allen, Amber Riley and Pulitzer Prize-Winning Novelist Alice Walker Join Returning Stars Kelsey Grammer, Theo Rossi, Annie Ilonzeh and more

iHeartMedia, the No. 1 podcast publisher globally according to Podtrac, and Will Packer Media, a first-of-its-kind production and branded content company led by record-breaking Hollywood producer Will Packer, today launched season two of “The Lower Bottoms,” a scripted and shadowy podcast series told through the voices that make-up a quickly gentrifying neighborhood in West Oakland, California.

Narrated by legendary actor Kelsey Grammer (Cheers, Frasier), season two kicks off six months after the Freedom House fire and data leak scandal. Beulah (voiced by Annie Ilonzeh) struggles with her mental health as her loyalty is tested from every direction. Meanwhile, Lenny (voiced by Theo Rossi) flounders as Oakland’s new mayor and Shante’s (voiced by Teresa Celeste) new life with the Russians is haunted by a very real pair of ghosts from the past.

An assembly of well-known Hollywood performers will join the cast of “The Lower Bottoms” this season. New cast members and guests include actress Debbie Allen (Grey’s Anatomy, Fame), who will lead as a female narrator; actress and singer Amber Riley (Glee), who will voice Rebecca; and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Alice Walker who will guest star.

In addition, season two will continue to be narrated by legendary actor Kelsey Grammer (Cheers, Fraiser) as well as a variety of notable returning cast members, including Theo Rossi (Army of the Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Luke Cage), who plays Lenny, a boisterous cafe owner with a chip on his shoulder; Annie Ilonzeh (Peppermint, Person of Interest, Chicago Fire) who will continue to lend her voice to Beulah, a confident but reserved young woman looking to find her way; and more.

The show was created and written by Dominique Mouton, and produced by Will Packer for Will Packer Media, Joelle Monique for iHeartRadio and Jack Levy, who also produced and directed the series.

The first episode of season two is available today, Monday, September 12, with new episodes airing every Monday. Listen to the debut episode HERE. “The Lower Bottoms” season two is a co-production of iHeartMedia and Will Packer Media and is distributed by iHeartPodcasts.

More news... GMA3 anchors T. J. Holmes and Amy Robach have been fired by ABC after their work affair was deemed a distraction by the network. TMZ, which first reported on their departure, cites network sources who claim they will receive payouts per their contracts. ABC reportedly accused both journalists of various forms of misconduct to justify the firings.

Nick Cannon has walked away from radio for the moment and has decided to end “Nick Cannon Radio” and “Cannon’s Countdown.” The shows were distributed by Skyview Networks and quietly went away in December. He is reportedly set to make a major media announcement in two weeks. Cannon's move necessitated 94.7 The Block (WXBK-FM New York) to hire Cipha Sounds to host middays.

A woman who is believed to be DJ Akademiks' girlfriend slammed a raw egg into his face and walked off angrily as he was live streaming. That's it. Google it. Perhaps it's something that should have happened long ago.
