All About the New 'Red Table Talk' Show With Gloria, Emily and Lili Estefan
The Estefan family has long been a source of fascination. They are talented, famous, self-made and a testament to the American dream. Now fans will get a closer look at the lives of Gloria, Lili and Emily Estefan on the new Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk: The Estefans.
THE ESTEFAN DYNASTY
“I’m incredibly excited to carry the Red Table Talk torch with my family in Miami,” Gloria Estefan said in a press release. "Jada and I have spoken about this a lot and feel my daughter, niece and I can tackle issues important to us and our fans with a new and fresh voice. Jada has done this incredibly and continues to do with her family in their candid, intimate, and groundbreaking conversations at the iconic Red Table."
The original Red Table Talk show was executive produced by Jada Pinkett Smith and her company with husband Will Smith; it centered around Jada's family. The new spin-off will be set in Miami and star the internationally famous Cuban singer Gloria Estefan, 62; her daughter, rising music star Emily Estefan, 25; and Emilio and Gloria Estefan's niece, television host Lili Estefan, 52.
Gloria Estefan and Jada Pinkett Smith will be executive producers of the series, which will have occasional celebrity guests. The show will feature Gloria, Lili and Emily — three women of three different generations with very unique personalities — having open and honest conversations on social topics and personal issues.
"I’m incredibly proud of Red Table Talk, and thrilled to build upon this franchise with my family and with Gloria, Emily and Lili,” Jada Pinkett Smith said in a statement. “Red Table Talk has created a space to have open, honest and healing conversations around social and topical issues, and what’s most powerful for me is hearing people’s stories and engaging with our fans in such a tangible way on the Facebook Watch platform."
The inspiring life of power couple Gloria and Emilio Estefan inspired their hit Broadway musical On Your Feet, which is about their love and groundbreaking success after meeting in the band Miami Sound Machine.
Gloria and her daughter Emily have shared the stage various times and have both expressed their admiration for one another as artists.
"You have to have that steel skin because a lot of people are going to compare you and that’s something I have to get used to," Emily Estefan told People CHICA about making her musical debut and facing comparisons to her famous mom.
LOVE IS LOVE
Emily Estefan is openly gay, and her parents have shown her and her girlfriend, Gemeny, unconditional love and support. Will she discuss her 'coming out' process on the show? Will she recall what it was like to grow up in her famous family?
PRIDE AND JOY
"I’m excited to see the Estefans put their spin on the franchise and take it to new places," Pinkett Smith added in a press release. We can't wait to watch!
