She described the series to Fast Company as “a cross between Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Mister Rogers’ [Neighborhood], and The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
Bozoma will juxtapose Saint John’s professional and personal experiences, and include interviews with individuals related to the theme of the episode.

Saint John added that the message of the series is “to show up wholly as ourselves.”
“I’ve had a lot of great feedback from different types of people who have said they appreciate that I’m able to be exactly who I am in all these spaces, even if I’m the one and only,” Saint John, who’s also worked at Apple and PepsiCo, continued.
The marketing superstar also took to Instagram to share the good news, thanking executives at Starz and Endeavor.
“When the STARZ align… and the jollof is piping hot… and the champagne is popped… and the dancing stilettos come out… and God divines…. WE CELEBRATE!!!” she wrote in a caption. “I’m so very honored to embark on another part of my journey with the incredible team at @Starz!!!”
