WHAT: iHeartMedia, the No.1 Podcast Publisher globally according to Podtrac, and Teleforce Productions announced today the launch of “Wheel Woman,” a new iHeartRadio Original podcast that tells the true story of Georgia Durante, an all-American beauty, who moves to New York and becomes a Mob wife and getaway driver for the Gambino crime family. Then, as a means to save her daughter and escape her abusive marriage and criminal ties, she moves to Los Angeles with $7 in her pocket and reinvents herself as Hollywood’s first female stunt driver. It’s a story that’s as wildly entertaining as it is powerful and poignant, addressing contemporary issues through the incredible experiences of a beautiful, smart, tough, dynamic, badass woman.
WHO: The scripted podcast is written by Lars Jacobson and Sabrina Jaglom, and directed by Sabrina Jaglom. It will be brought to life by an ensemble cast of characters voiced by Lelia Symington as Georgia, with additional performances by: Tanner Beard, Zachary Webber, Simon Jaglom, Chase Mullins, Nick Williams, Gabe Greenspan, Dylan McCollum, Garrett Baer, Nora Garrett, Ducan Calladine, Victoria Foyt, Max Giorgi, Mariah Bess, and Max Jacoby.
“Wheel Woman” gives listeners the inside scoop, sharing Georgia's lifetime of hardship and the lessons she picked up along the way. Those who have known her for the last twenty years as one of Hollywood's most successful female commercial stunt drivers have been shocked by the truth of her past. To those in Hollywood, Georgia Durante was always the steely-nerved stuntwoman with the skill to handle a three-ton high-performance vehicle in high-speed precision maneuvers; and the beautiful model and actress– who was once named “Kodak Girl” for being the most photographed model in the world. Now, Georgia reveals the incredible details of her past and relives her experiences as both a wheel woman and wife in the Gambino crime family. Listeners will be captivated as each episode exposes the many layers of this dynamic woman.
WHEN: The first episode launches Thursday, May 5, with new episodes released every Thursday. Listen to the first episode HERE.
WHERE: “Wheel Woman” is distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network and is available on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are available.
QUOTE: “My life has taken me down many unexpected turns, each more incredible and far-fetched than the last. I’m so excited to share my story and let listeners in on the hard-won lessons I’ve learned and the resilience it takes to persevere in this world as a woman. You’ll never see the next twist coming,” said Georgia Durante.
