Join us, as our special guest stars discuss their pivotal roles in NYC's hot television climate.
The Extravaganza (www.empirestatetv.com) benefits New York Cares - New York City's largest volunteer management organization. New York Cares runs vital programs for 1,300 nonprofits, public schools, and city agencies to help people in need throughout the five boroughs, and does so at no cost to the recipient organizations. Since 1987, New York Cares has made it easy for all New Yorkers to work together to strengthen the city; last year, we provided critical services to more than 400,000 at-risk New Yorkers. For more information, visit newyorkcares.org.
This event started because founder, Suzanne Froix, a NY actress, loves television and wants to see the television industry in New York City celebrated and acknowledged as a vital part of The Big Apple. In 2013-2014, 27 shows have been shot/cast in the city - that's something to be admired and excited about!
