May 15, 2012 – West Hollywood, CA –Actress Terri Garber is the first special guest star to sign on for the second season of the award-winning web sitcom Old Dogs & New Tricks. She’ll play “Dr. Ashley,” another inept analyst for neurotic “Nathan Adler” (series creator Leon Acord).
Garber is perhaps best known for her star-making turn in the 80s TV miniseries North & South, opposite Patrick Swayze, and the follow-up miniseries North & South Book II. She’s also a familiar face to soap fans, having played continuing roles on As the World Turns and General Hospital, as well as “Lesley Carrington” on the classic 1980s prime-time serial Dynasty. She’s also appeared on Law & Order, ER, among many others.
Old Dogs & New Tricks follows four middle-aged gay best friends living in youth-obsessed West Hollywood. Acord, Jeffrey Patrick Olson, Curt Bonnem and David Pevsner star as the four friends; cabaret star Amanda Abel and Ryland Shelton appear in recurring roles. Doug Spearman (Noah’s Arc) is also joining the show in Season 2 as a regular.
Written/created by Acord, and developed for the web and directed by Arvin Bautista, the web series’ first season was recently honored as “Outstanding Dramedy Program” and “Outstanding Ensemble Cast in a Dramedy” at the 2012 LA Web Fest.
“I’m thrilled to have Terri on the show,” says Acord. “Even in her dramatic roles, she always has a twinkle in her eye and a great sense of humor. I can’t wait for folks to see her in a new light!”
Old Dogs & New Tricks begins shooting Season 2 in late summer 2012 and will premiere Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013. The show is raising funds via the crowd-sourcing site IndieGoGo. To help, please visit http://www.indiegogo.com/olddogsnewtricksseason2.
