Yes, they're back! FYCs! Did you know that the TV Academy has a new theatre, complete with state-of-the-art Dolby everything? It's really spectacular!
I confess that it's my special a treat to find a personal connection to nominated shows during Emmy season. For this one, I worked as a dancer on the pilot. Choreographer, Michael Rooney put a lot of us to work! I'm wearing the pink shirt to the left of the pretzel that's making me very hungry right now. What is it about those things? Sooo yummy! That's Rachel Bloom riding the pretzel, the talented creator, writer, and star of the show. You'd recognize her from the giant salt crystals permanently imbedded in her backside.
Choreographer, and 2016's Emmy Winner, Kat Burns works her magic on all the shows, putting together a "music video" and more for every episode! And Kat is represented by my agency, Clear Talent Group, so there's that connection treat I mentioned earlier. She also danced in the pilot! I do not know her proximity to the pretzel ... but I want her eyebrows!
Here's a snip mash-up of some songs the cast shared with us!
