From releasing the first interview with Olivia Jade where she discussed the USC college admissions scandal, to the infamous episode where Jada brought herself to the table, "Red Table Talk" has dominated the pop culture conversation.

"The Red Table Talk community is growing every day on Facebook Watch, and we're looking forward to bringing fans more groundbreaking episodes this year with Jada, Willow, Gammy and our partners at Westbrook Studios."

· "As a producer, it is a thrill to witness three generations take on topics that are groundbreaking, important and healing in a way that we have never quite seen before," said "Red Table Talk" Executive Producer Ellen Rakieten. "In partnership with Facebook Watch, we have created a new lane for a new kind of conversation. We are grateful to the millions who have built our loyal and passionate 'Red Table Talk' community and are excited about our new episodes that are sure to have everyone sharing, liking and commenting.

· Episode topics to come will include conversations around sexuality, narcissism, and hidden epidemics within the global pandemic, from abuse to conspiracy theories.

· With over 10.4M followers on the "Red Table Talk" Facebook Page, the groundbreaking series has built a loyal community in the "Red Table Talk" Facebook Group with more than 623K engaged members who join the conversation week after week to connect with one another and share their own stories.

· "Red Table Talk" is a three-time Daytime Emmy-nominated series and has won three NAACP Image awards. Jada Pinkett Smith was also honored with the Trailblazer Award at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Additionally, the series has been nominated for Critics Choice Awards, Critics Choice Real TV Awards, and People's Choice Awards.
