ATLANTA - December 6, 2021 – Bamfer Productions and iHeartMedia, the No.1 podcast publisher globally according to Podtrac, today announced the upcoming launch of “Magmell,” a new iHeartRadio Original Podcast created by Jeff Heimbuch and Lyndsie Scoggin, the team behind the smash-hit thriller, “Light House” – a chart-topping fictional podcast for two years running. The first episode of “Magmell” will debut December 13, with subsequent episodes airing every Monday for the duration of its ten episodes. “Magmell” is distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network and can be heard on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are available. Listeners can hear the official trailer now – here.
The podcast follows Captain Cydney Owens and Captain Jana Prescott, as they embark on an important scientific mission aboard the USS Magmell. Along with Proteus, the on-board AI, their mission is to visit the Helix Nebula and study it up close to widen our knowledge of outer space. However, their mission takes a turn when an anomaly throws the ship off-course, stranding them trillions of miles from Earth with no way home. Will they be able to return to their loved ones? Why do they both seem to remember things that never happened? And just what else is lurking in the cold, dark reaches of outer space, waiting for them?
Throughout its ten episodes, “Magmell” will answer these questions, and take you on the sci-fi horror thrill ride you’ve been waiting for. Each episode is approximately 30 minutes long, making it the perfect, bite-sized, weekly escape from everyday life.
“I’ve been obsessed with space travel since I was a kid, especially with how little we know about what’s out there,” said writer / director Jeff Heimbuch. “Something about the vast isolation of it terrifies me, especially with what could be lurking out there.”
“I have been a fan of sci-fi since I was a kid, so getting a front-row seat to watch this podcast develop and unfold has been a delight,” said Holly Frey, Managing Executive Producer for The iHeartPodcast Network. “Jeff and his team have outdone themselves in bringing an original, tense and deeply compelling story to life, one that’s anchored in a premise of space travel, but is really about human connection.”
Follow “Magmell” today on iHeartRadio, the iHeartRadio app and anywhere else podcasts are available.
