    Bonus Episode: Jingle Jangle Interview with Lyn Sisson-Talbert

    Bonus Episode: Jingle Jangle Interview with Lyn Sisson-Talbert

    In this bonus episode of Truth's Table, Ekemini and Christina are sitting at the table with Lyn Sisson-Talbert, the producer of the hit Netflix movie, Jingle Jangle! Lyn Sisson-Talbert stands tall as one of the most accomplished female producers in Hollywood and the guiding force behind top grossing original projects for film, stage, and books. Sisson-Talbert is producing Netflix's first original live-action musical Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, a 20-year passion project she has been developing alongside her husband David E. Talbert. Sisson-Talbert's other film producing credits include Fox Searchlight's Baggage Claim, Universal's Almost Christmas, both of which opened as the #1 Comedy in America, & Netflix's El Camino Christmas. You can follow Lyn on Instagram @LynSissonTalbert.
    In addition to the film, Jingle Jangle, Lyn co-authored two books with her husband, David E. Talbert just in time for this holiday season. In the heartwarming picture book, THE SQUARE ROOT OF POSSIBLE: A Jingle Jangle Story, Journey is told by her mother that she and her grandfather, Jeronicus Jangle, are very much alike. They share the same gift and fervor for math, but when Journey meets him for the first time, she discovers the magic he had for equations and solving problems is gone. Eager to help, Journey is determined to solve this problem, because doing so will equal finding her grandfather’s joy.
    In the charming middle grade novel, JINGLE JANGLE: The Invention of Jeronicus Jangle, the grandfather-granddaughter pair make and sell whimsical toys together — until things start to go wrong. Christmas is endangered when Jeronicus’ trusted apprentice, Gustufson, steals a prized creation. With the help of a long-forgotten invention and a bit of magic, the town’s most famous toymaker and his granddaughter construct a magical invention which, if they can get it to work in time for the holidays, could change their lives forever.
