Central Park is a new animated musical comedy to premiere May 29 on AppleTV+ about the Tillermans, a family that lives in Central Park. Owen, the park manager, and Paige, his journalist wife, raise their kids Molly and Cole in the world’s most famous park while fending off hotel heiress Bitsy Brandenham and her long-suffering assistant Helen, who would love nothing more than to turn the park into condos. The all-star panel includes Kristen Bell (Molly), Daveed Diggs (Helen), Kathryn Hahn (Paige), Leslie Odom, Jr. (Owen), Loren Bouchard (Executive Producer/Co-Creator), Josh Gad (serving as both character “Birdie” and Executive Producer/ Co-Creator), Nora Smith (Executive Producer/Co-Creator), Sanjay Shah (Executive Producer), and Halsted Sullivan (Executive Producer).
The following week, on Friday, June 5, we continue at 12 Noon EST with MSNBC’s Know Your Value: On-Air and At Home, a Conversation About Reporting the Story While Living Through It.
An all-star panel of NBC News & MSNBC journalists discuss how to know your value during this time and share their personal stories about balancing it all while reporting on the greatest public health crisis in recent years.

Lastly, on Friday, June 12, at 12 Noon EST, we finish with ABC’s Summer Fun and Game Show Hosts at Home
For several seasons ABC has been a pop culture and all-around hit with popular reimaginings of iconic game shows, including Celebrity Family Feud, To Tell the Truth, The $100,000 Pyramid, and Match Game. These dynamic series feature a winning combination of high-energy, often funny, competition elements, and a cavalcade of acclaimed and popular hosts. The network’s “Summer Fun & Games” line up has now grown to include new hits including extreme mini-golf competition series Holey Moley, the upcoming comedic physical game show Don’t, and updates of cherished favorites such as Card Sharks and Press Your Luck. As their new seasons premiere, Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan, the host of The $100,000 Pyramid himself, will host a conversation with some of the show hosts including Alec Baldwin (Match Game), Anthony Anderson (To Tell the Truth), Steve Harvey (Celebrity Family Feud), Rob Riggle (Holey Moley), and Joe Tessitore (Holey Moley).
