On April 28, the stars of “Melrose Place” reunited on a very special edition of “Stars in the House,” hosted by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley.
For the first time since 2012, Josie Bissett (Jane Mancini), Thomas Calabro (Michael Mancini), Marcia Cross (Kimberly Shaw), Laura Leighton (Sydney Andrews), Heather Locklear (Amanda Woodward), Doug Savant (Matt Fielding), Grant Show (Jake Hanson), Andrew Shue (Billy Campbell), Courtney Thorne-Smith (Alison Parker) and Daphne Zuniga (Jo Reynolds) reminisced with Seth and James about their years in West Hollywood’s most iconic apartment complex, sharing behind-the-scenes stories and calling out some of their favorite moments on and off set! Viewers joined in on the fun, submitting questions that Seth and James asked the cast throughout the evening.
“Seth and I believe that in this time of social distancing and isolation, much happiness can be found by seeing familiar faces from shows beloved by the whole world,” said James Wesley. “We call these shows comfort TV. And we plan on having even more every week, along with our beloved theatre pals – all for The Actors Fund.”
“Melrose Place” joins the lineup of casts that Seth and James have brought back together to sing, share stories, and raise funds to help entertainment professionals in need during the COVID-19 pandemic including TV favorites “Frasier,” “Glee,” “Desperate Housewives,” “SCTV,” “Difficult People,” and “Taxi;” and the iconic original Broadway casts of “Spring Awakening” and “Les Misérables,” among others. Celebrity guests Chita Rivera, Kristin Chenoweth, Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond, Jeremy Jordan, Judith Light, Audra McDonald and Will Swenson, Patrick Wilson, Annette Bening, and many more have also stopped by. As the creators and executive producers of “Stars In The House,” Seth and James bring a masterful combination of music and community to each episode, ensuring that the show goes on in viewers’ homes even while performance venues across the world are closed.
“Stars In The House” airs new episodes daily at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on its YouTube channel.
