Broadway actor Tituss Burgess has landed a recurring role on the upcoming NBC series "Tooken," according to Deadline.com.
The new series is from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, a follow-up to the award-winning "30 Rock," in which Burgess had been seen as the flamboyant D'Fwan.
Writers Fey and Carlock will serve as showrunners for the 13-episode comedy, which will star Ellie Kemper.
"Tooken," according to Deadline, "centers on Kimmy (Kemper) who escapes from a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York. Burgess will play a gay, larger-than-life, genuinely talented singer who has never made it to Broadway and lives hand-to-mouth, working as a robot in Times Square. His relationship with Kimmy will re-energize him."
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
