GOOD Trouble Starts Now: Nick Kyrgios' New Talk Show Promises Candid Conversations

New Show Nick Kyrgios

 Nick Kyrgios, the bad boy of tennis, is launching his own talk show.

The Wimbledon finalist has teamed up with Naomi Osaka’s media company, Hana Kuma, to launch Good Trouble with Nick Kyrgios, a video podcast series.

The series, which launches on January 24, will feature interviews with the likes of Gordon Ramsay, who serves first, Jemele Hill, Jay Shetty, Frances Tiafoe, Rainn Wilson, Gary Vaynerchuk, Mike Tyson and Osaka.

It will be available in the U.S. via the Tennis Channel, and in Europe, it will air on Discovery+ and Eurosport and on Hana Kuma’s YouTube channel and podcast platforms.  

Hana Kuma was launched in 2022 by the U.S. Open and Australian Open champion Osaka and her longtime agent, Stuart Duguid. It recently spun off from LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s The SpringHill Co, which helped incubate the company. It produced short films Mink! and Footsteps.

“I can’t wait for the release of my new series,” said Kyrgios. “It’s been tough for me to sit out the last year or so dealing with an injury, but I’ve had a lot of fun commentating and developing my own talk show. Hana Kuma has been a great partner and really brought my vision to life. We’ve got an all-star lineup of guests for Season 1, and I can’t wait for everyone to check it out.”

“From day one, we believed that Nick would be a great host,” said Duguid. “He brings a unique perspective while interviewing trailblazers from all industries that, like him, have forged their own path and consistently challenged the status quo. I love the fact that Nick’s ambitious enough to kick this project off while he’s still in the middle of his on-court career. He is as confident as a seasoned veteran talk show host, and he keeps getting better and better.”

Kyrgios is signed to Evolve, Osaka and Duguid's first female-athlete-led talent agency.
