Guests include creator and star Lisa Kudrow, director and executive producer Michael Patrick King, executive producer and co-star Dan Bucatinsky, and actors Laura Silverman, Lance Barber, and Damian Young. The stream will be available for viewing above.

Adds Rudetsky: “The superb writing, the brilliant comedic acting, the heart underneath it all and the amazing theme exploring the bizarreness of pop culture...it all combined to create one of our absolute favorite TV shows ever! Everyone must watch! To misquote Valerie Cherish: You do need to see this!”

Stars in the House launched March 16 to promote support for The Actors Fund and its services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. It has also raised funds for the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

New shows—streaming Monday–Saturday at 8 PM ET with afternoon shows Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday at 2 PM—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Peter Flynn serves as streaming director. Click here to watch previous episodes.
