A new, special interview episode of Blood Ties was released on January 21. In it, we hear from actors Josh Gad and Gillian Jacobs about what it was like for them to work on Blood Ties, what podcasts they like to listen to, and when they realized that they had met each other decades earlier. We also hear from writer Ben Gray and director Marshall Lewy about the ripped from the headlines inspiration as well as what’s to come in season two with Lindsay Graham, executive producer of 1865, and host of American History Tellers and American Scandal.
The podcast Blood Ties is about Eleonore (Gillian Jacobs) and Michael Richland (Josh Gad) who have unexpectedly lost their parents in a small plane crash and must choose between two very different paths in life: to honor their father’s legacy as a world renowned cardiologist and health care magnate or to risk everything to find the truth.
The first season contains six scripted episodes and is from Wondery, the makers of Dirty John, Dr. Death, and Over My Dead Body. The podcast stars Gillian Jacobs, Josh Gad, and Amy Landecker.
