Louis Theroux is to interview celebrities for his first radio and podcast series, Grounded With Louis Theroux. The BBC Radio 4 and BBC Sounds show also happens to be the first commission for his newly-launched production outfit Mindhouse Productions, which last week inked a first-look deal with BBC Studios.

Twenty years after his When Louis Met… series on the BBC — in which he trailed people including Simon Cowell’s former PR guru Max Clifford — Theroux is returning to the world of celebrity by interviewing the likes of Lenny Henry, Boy George and Miriam Margolyes in hour-long episodes. The series will launch on April 27 on BBC Sounds with an episode featuring documentary maker Jon Ronson.

“It’s been a chance to speak to people I admire and have in-depth conversations with them, about their lives, their careers, and their most intimate feelings,” Theroux said. “Making a podcast and radio series is very different to my usual way of working. And for that reason, I’ve found it very fun and refreshing.”

Rhian Roberts, Radio 4  commissioner for digital and podcasts, said: “Surprisingly, given his famous voice and interview style, Louis’ never had a podcast or radio series so we couldn’t be happier to welcome him to Radio 4. It feels like such a treat in these times to settle down with a podcast full of warmth and mischief – and a lot of insight.”
