Lewis Howes to Host Facebook Watch Talk Show

Series to Be Filmed in a Brooklyn Loft

ITV America’s Leftfield Pictures has teamed with Scooter Braun’s SB Projects to develop and produce a new talk format for Facebook Watch, hosted by The New York Times Best-Selling author, entrepreneur and host of the podcast “The School of Greatness,” Lewis Howes. “Breakthrough with Lewis Howes” will premiere on Facebook Watch later this year.
 
The logline: Blending powerful human-interest pieces with expert interviews and a town hall-style interaction with its studio audience, the new series aims to inspire and empower viewers to reach their full potential, accomplish their goals and share their achievements. Each episode will dive deep into one specific topic, falling under themes such as happiness, forgiveness, financial success and social equality. Howes will connect everyday people struggling with these issues to the world’s foremost experts. 
 
“My mission is to share inspiring content that connects the world and uplifts humanity by breaking through daily challenges that hold us back from living our greatest lives,” said Lewis Howes. “We are excited to bring this to Facebook as we believe it’s the perfect audience looking for this information!”
 
“Lewis has an incredible talent for connecting with people and inspiring them to share their struggles and triumphs,”
added executive producer and SB Projects founder Scooter Braun. “He is the perfect person to helm this transformative and inspiring show. We are excited to put something positive like this out into the world.”
 
Filmed in a Brooklyn loft space, each show will feature a live studio audience made up of individuals all dealing with the day’s topic, and who participate in the conversation. At the end of each episode, Howes presents a call to action, with strategies, practices and tips to help guests – and Facebook Watch viewers — navigate their challenges and rise above them. 
 
As part of the weekly format, there will also be a Live episode every Wednesday, where Howes addresses viewer feedback and answers Facebook community questions about the week’s topic. He’ll also use a dedicated Facebook Group to check guest and viewer progress throughout the week.
