SAN DIEGO. March 9, 2017: Audio research and strategy firm Mark Ramsey Media announces a deal with leading podcast publisher Wondery LLC to create original content.
The first project produced for Wondery will be Inside Psycho, a six-part deep dive inspired by the making of the classic movie Psycho. A special sneak preview is available today wherever you listen to podcasts.
“This is the first content project from Mark Ramsey Media aimed directly at consumers,” said MRM founder Mark Ramsey. “I’m thrilled to work with Wondery on this project. Wondery CEO Hernan Lopez and President of Content Jeffrey Glaser have TV-style story sensibilities, and those beautifully fit Inside Psycho, which is designed more like a movie than a radio show.”
“It’s all here, from the real-world serial murders that inspired the film, to the movie star crank calls that gave us the voice of ‘Mother,’ to Hitchcock’s relentless efforts to terrify Janet Leigh, to the way the movie re-made Hollywood forever,” said Ramsey. “We have created a biopic without pictures, a swashbuckling story of fear and loathing, risk and reward, great joy and paralyzing fear – all in a rich, immersive, ground-breaking sound design.”
Inside Psycho tells not just the incredible story behind Psycho, but also the story of the extraordinary struggles of making a movie that, against all odds, became one of the most iconic films of all time.
“Wondery is excited to premiere the audio adventure Inside Psycho,” said Hernan Lopez, founder of Wondery. “and we are even more excited to work with Mark Ramsey Media. Mark Ramsey is a forward-thinker in the audio space. And he has created a series not just for movie-buffs, but also for all artists and entrepreneurs who have chased a dream and experienced the thrilling highs and crushing lows of the creative journey.”
The first two episodes will premiere March 24th. Inside Psycho joins Wondery as the newest original, alongside the critically acclaimed series Hollywood & Crime, FOUND, Terms, and Secrets, Crimes & Audiotape.
