In the first episode, Furlan welcomes her husband, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, for a candid conversation about their worst first experiences. In the episode, Lee discusses some of his craziest encounters with fans, as well as a story about what he had to do in order to drive a date’s Corvette. Future episodes will roll out every Tuesday, with conversations typically focused on dating and relationship mishaps.
“Worst Firsts is a series I did on my YouTube channel, where I would talk to people about their worst first dates,” Furlan tells Tubefilter. “After a few conversations, I was like, ‘Wow, a lot of people have been through crazy first dates’ — which was the thing that ultimately inspired my podcast.”
Worst Firsts is being produced and distributed by multi-channel network Studio71 through its recently-formed podcast division, which launched in June and furnishes the same services for audio series headlined by digital stars like Christine Sydelko and Harley Morenstein. San Francisco podcast upstart Himalaya will also serve as a launch partner for the show, which will be distributed via iTunes, Spotify, and Google Play. Accompanying video versions of the recordings will air on Furlan’s YouTube channel (see below), which counts 328,000 subscribers.
Furlan — who is repped by Brian Lieberman at Studio71, Management 360, and WME — most recently appeared in Netflix‘s social media docuseries The American Meme, and also has a budding acting career. She is set to feature in the forthcoming film Spy Intervention as well as a TV series titled Paradise City co-starring Bella Thorne and Olivia Culpo.
