February 22, 2024

LOS ANGELES, CA – FEB 22, 2024 – After a successful debut season with over 3 million downloads and 12+ festival selections, the award-winning podcast Table Read, which brings unproduced scripts to life, is gearing up to release the highly anticipated season two.

The season debuts with ‘Dreamworld,’ a fantasy-drama screenplay by Sonny Postiglione, known for his work on ‘Life on Mars,’ ‘Human Target,’ ‘NYPD Blue,’ ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ ‘No Ordinary Family,’ ‘Law & Order,’ ‘Bloodline,’ among others. The story follows a grieving father transported to Dreamworld, where he teams up with fairy tale characters like an older, sword-wielding Jack, his best friend, the gun-toting Giant, and the werewolf Little Red Riding Hood. Drawing from classics like ‘The NeverEnding Story,’ ‘Shrek,’ and ‘Coraline,’ this immersive tale promises enchantment.

Notable cast in the debut episode include narrator Dennis Kleinman, Craig Parker (“Lord of the Rings”), David Errigo Jr. (“Yu-Gi-Oh!”), Lee Garlington (“The Sum of All Fears”), Chris Mann (“The Voice”), Ashley Platz (“Yellowstone”), Bjorn Johnson (“How To Train Your Dragon 2” and “Modern Family”), and Shaan Sharma (“The Chosen”), Table Read’s Executive Producer and SAG Board Member, and many more.

The Manifest Media team, led by showrunners Jack Levy, Mark Knell, and Shaan Sharma, has garnered acclaim with nominations at the Austin Revolution Film Fest (2024), Women’s Comedy Film Festival Atlanta 2024, Shorty Impact Awards, Apulia Webfest, NJ WebFest, NZ WebFest, 17th place in the Audio Fiction World Cup, and Baltimore WebFest. They have also secured recent wins at the All The Laughs Comedy Awards, Popcon, Melbourne WebFest, Beyond the Curve, and the Golden Crane. Additionally, achieving a consistent Top 10 Fiction ranking on Apple Podcasts for 44 weeks during its debut season and boasting a five-star rating from nearly 3,000 downloads further solidified their successful debut run.

Mark Knell, Executive Producer of Table Read, expressed enthusiasm about the upcoming season, stating, “We are thrilled to showcase stories from icons who have shaped generations of entertainment but chosen to let certain passion projects sit on the shelf…until now. Pairing these scripts with notable and ingenious emerging artists to breathe life into them makes for an unparalleled audio experience unlike anything else in podcasting.”

Table Read Season 2 is scheduled to launch in March 2024 and will be available on all major podcast platforms. Additional information can be found at
