The series will offer movie and television news through the lens of IMDb's data and research, along with interviews of celebrities and industry analysts.
The IMDb Show will be comprised of segments utilizing the database's data and information to explore trending movie and television topics.
"Close Up" sees celebrity guests stop by to share stories behind their IMDb past and upcoming industry credits, while "The Watchlist" sees guests and show hosts Tim Kash (MTV News) and Kerri Doherty (writer, The Goldbergs) discuss anticipated movies and TV shows.
"The Trailer Trailer" offers a mash-up of clips from each week's fresh trailers and "On Location" takes movie and TV fans to the sets of their favorite productions.
Smith, who has hosted IMDb's coverage of Sundance and San Diego Comic Con while sporting an IMDb-themed hockey jersey, says he's "loved" working with the world famous internet movie database.
"When the IMDb team asked me to get involved in The IMDb Show with Tim and Kerri, I instantly said yes," Smith told The Wrap. "I mean, you can never have too many credits from IMDb on your IMDb page.”
“IMDb was built by and for a community of uniquely passionate and informed fans,” said Col Needham, IMDb’s Founder and CEO.
“The IMDb Show, our first-ever weekly studio show, will reflect their curiosity and interests. Our vision is to host an informative, entertaining conversation around the shows, movies and talent that our customers are obsessed with, leveraging IMDb’s unique and authoritative data to enrich the weekly entertainment conversation and inform viewing decisions.”
The first episode of The IMDb Show is now available to watch.
Smith will next revisit his View Askewniverse with Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, reuniting Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith). The "super clever" script pokes fun at reboots.
