The second season will premiere on Sept. 14. Filmed in Atlanta, the new season will be taped at Harvey’s home in a newly constructed set due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The production will feature a live virtual audience that will interact with Harvey throughout the show. Second season guests will include Gabrielle Union, Jack Black, Steph Curry, Errol Spence Jr., D-Nice, Te’a Cooper, and more.
“The success of season one was due to my incredibly engaged fan base who joined me on the Facebook Watch platform,” Harvey said. “Our amazing team guarantees an even more exciting show in season two.”

Harvey executive produces the show along with Brandon Williams, Christel Sice, Michael Antinoro, and Ianthe Jones, who also serves as showrunner. The series is produced by Harvey’s East 112 production banner and Endeavor Content’s Film 45.
