Pop singer Kesha leads the cast of a new science fiction podcast from QCode. The cast of the show entitled Electric Easyalso includes singer Cloe Bailey and actor Mason Gooding (Booksmart and Love, Victor). QCode says both Kesha and Bailey have each written an original song for the ten-episode series.
“I had so much fun getting the opportunity to write and perform new music while immersing myself in this heartfelt story,” said Kesha in a statement. “It was wonderful working with so many talented actors on a podcast truly unlike anything I’ve ever listened to before. It’s a captivating story that confronts so many social issues, celebrating and highlighting the struggles of the LGBTG+ community, and gives a perspective on AI that I’ve never heard or seen before. I cannot wait for everyone to hear it.”
Created by Vanya Asher (“Shadow and Bone”), Electric Easy is described as a musical neo-noir science fiction podcast about a forbidden love between a runaway android and the human sent to hunt her down. Set in a near future Los Angeles and centered around the growing subculture of androids called electrics, the story is told through the perspectives of a cast of diverse characters caught up in a whirlwind of events.
“Electric Easy is a wild musical exploration of love, loss and what makes us human,” said Asher. “Working with Chloe, Mason, the legendary Kesha, and the rest of our extraordinarily talented cast was a dream come true. From their songwriting and performances to their powerful voice acting, everyone confidently stepped into this fantastical world and gave it their everything.”
The cast also includes actors Frances Fisher, Happy Anderson, Jojo T. Gibbs, Benito Skinner, Lachlan Watson, Erica Ash, Sugar Lyn Beard, Sean Maguire, Jen Kober, Detox, and Brendan Jordan.
Asher and Kesha will serve as executive producers, along with QCode CEO Rob Herting, David Henning and Sandra Yee Ling.
Electric Easy debuts July 19.
