Audible has just announced a multi-project agreement with At Will Media, an independent podcast studio. As part of the new agreement, and Audible's continuing commitment to produce new podcast content, Audible has also announced a new scripted podcast, Koz. The new podcast will star Kate Mara and Taylor Kitsch, and will premiere on Audible on September 15, 2022.
Special Agent Darrin "Koz" Kozlowski's true story will be told in interviews with the real-life Kozlowski as well as dramatic reenactments. The cast will include Kitsch, Mara, Xander Berkeley, and Chris Diamantopoulos.
Koz is written by Rob Fresco, who previously worked on Ray Donovan, and directed by Scott Ellis of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It is executive produced by Will Malnati of At Will Media, along with Kitsch and Fresco.
