Ficto’s ‘Not a Sports Show’

Not a Sports Show, a six-episode weekly talk show with actor/comedian Lil Rel Howery interviewing, well, sports stars, debuts this Thursday on Ficto, the free short-form mobile streamer.

The first episode’s guest will be former Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce. Guests on the other five episodes, debuting Thursdays through April 29, will be Chiney Ogwumike (WNBA), Joc Pederson (MLB), Kenny Smith (NBA), Melvin Ingram (NFL), Sabrina Ionescu (WNBA), Shannon Sharpe (NFL) and Shaun White (snowboarder/skateboarder).

“I got to hang with some of my favorite athletes, have great conversation and drink some beer. I can’t wait to do it again with our partners at Panay Films, Anheuser-Busch and Ficto,” said Howery. (Anheuser-Busch is a co-producer of the series, so you should expect some plugs for Budweiser during the interviews.)

Ficto is available through an app for iOS and Android
