Viola Davis, Queen Latifah, & More In Variety’s 2nd Actors on Actors Series

With Emmy nominations just around the corner–July 16th to be exact– actors and actresses from the silver screen are already starting their campaigns. In an effort to keep the buzz going, many actors join roundtable discussions with fellow actors presented by popular entertainment publications such as The Hollywood Reporter, The LA Times, or Variety.

One series that gained huge popularity last year was Variety and PBS SoCaL’s “Actors on Actors,” which will have a second installment on June 14 and 21. The first installment of “Actors on Actors” was nominated for an Emmy in the entertainment programming category.

The series features oViola Davis actos on actorsne-on-one conversations between actors including Queen Latifah with Taraji P. Henson, Jane Fonda with Tony Award Winner Viola Davis, Claire Danes with Don Cheadle, Gina Rodriguez with Uzo Aduba, and several others. The conversations cover subjects that pertain to the craft of acting and the industry itself such as: their process, why they chose to move to television, fighting for roles, and playing complex women in television.

“After the great success from our initial partnership with Variety, PBS SoCal is excited to once again bring these intimate conversations to our esteemed viewers,” said Andy Russell, PBS SoCaL COO. “Variety Studios: Actors on Actors” gives the PBS audience an informative and in-depth look at the behind-the-scenes workings of the entertainment industry similar to the extraordinary journalism that Variety provides on a daily basis.”

“Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” is presented by Autograph Collection Hotels, Marriott International’s distinctive portfolio of hotels. The series is sponsored by Caesarstone.

In addition to the premiere on PBS, the Variety YouTube account has already began uploading some of the interviews, including those of Taraji P. Henson/Queen Latifah and Viola Davis/Jane Fonda.
