The Actors Fund has announced a new comedic weekly series, “Viral Vignettes”, featuring original work with popular character actors from classic TV shows and films. The series will showcase 5-10 minute vignettes. Donations can be made at actorsfund.org/vignettes.

Participating celebrities in the “Viral Vignettes” series will be Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, “Spin City”), Gail O’Grady (“NYPD Blue”, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, She’s Having a Baby), John Schneider (“The Dukes of Hazzard”, “Smallville”), Renee Taylor (“The Nanny”), Audrey Landers (“Dallas”, A Chorus Line) More exciting stars to be announced. The writers range from veteran network comedy show runners and award-winning playwrights to newcomers, adding their own unique voices to the mix.
