Rooster Teeth’s The Roost podcast network has unveiled its latest series, The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of, which will center around the impressive Hollywood prop collections of its co-hosts.
The Stuff is headlined by entertainment luminaries David Mandel — the former showrunner for Veep and a writer, producer, and director on Seinfeld — and Ryan Condal, who will serve as a showrunner on HBO’s forthcoming Game Of Thrones prequel series House Of The Dragon. The Roost’s newly-tapped head exec A.J. Feliciano will lead development on the podcast, and the network will oversee ad sales and distribution across Apple, Spotify, RoosterTeeth.com, and more.
Bowing on Oct. 22, The Stuff will see Mandel and Condal discussing their own experiences on set while also sharing the anecdotes behind the props, costumes, art, and other on-set treasures that they’ve accumulated throughout their collective 35 years in show business. Over a total of 12 episodes, they will cover, for instance, an original Planet of the Apes soldier costume, a distressed Terminator jacket, an original cowl from Tim Burton‘s Batman, and other iconic pieces. They will also interview fellow prop sellers and collectors.
“What first attracted me to the hobby is the history and mystery of it,” Condal said in a statement. “We thought it would be a lot of fun to share our stories with like-minded collectors, casual fans, and people who can’t believe that we spend our time doing this.”
All told, The Roost says its family of podcasts nabs 280 million monthly video views and 10 million monthly audio downloads. The network cultivates personality-driven series that align with the Rooster Teeth ethos, providing ad sales, production, marketing, ecommerce, events, and distribution infrastructure to owned-and-operated and third-party shows alike, including Rooster Teeth Podcast, Off Topic, Zane And Heath: Unfiltered, and The Last Podcast On The Left.
