exhale-logoMagic Johnson’s cable network Aspire has green lit “Exhale,” a talk show in the vein of “The View” to be hosted by five African-American women in the entertainment space.

The weekly gab fest aims to bring candid conversation to topics including family, relationships, career, money and faith. Co-hosts are journalist Angela Burt-Murray, thespian/comedian Erin Jackson, helmer Issa Rae, author and TV anchor Rene Syler and actress Malinda Williams.

“Exhale,” produced by Lynne Robinson and Black Robin Media, will be Aspire’s third original series. Shooting has started, and the eight-episode first run will bow in June to coincide with the network’s one-year anniversary.

“We are thrilled to add ‘Exhale’ to our lineup of original programming,” said the  networks GM Paul Butler. “This fresh, hip and candid new series will enlighten audiences with its broad range of topics relevant to the community.”

Aspire launched last June as a part of the deal struck between Comcast and NBC Universal and targets African-American audiences.
