Actor STEPHEN TOBOLOWSKY's autobiographical podcast "THE TOBOLOWSKY FILES" is coming to public radio in OCTOBER under a new deal with PUBLIC RADIO INTERNATIONAL. The podcast, produced by /FILM's DAVID CHEN and featuring TOBOLOWSKY's stories about his career, life, and battle with health problems and injuries, has been airing on UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON noncommercial News-Talk KUOW/SEATTLE and will now be produced for public radio stations nationwide, with MARGARET MOOS PICK producing a four-part pilot episode.
PRI SVP/Content MELINDA WARD said, "STEPHEN is a truly great storyteller, and the stories of his experiences as one of AMERICA's most prolific character actors range from hilariously odd to surprisingly poignant. We're looking forward to adding STEPHEN's voice and 'THE TOBOLOWSKY FILES' to PRI's portfolio of distinctive news, talk, culture and music programming."
TOBOLOWSKY, best known as NED RYERSON in "GROUNDHOG DAY," BOB BISHOP in "HEROES," and SANDY on "GLEE," has been one of HOLLYWOOD's most familiar character actors, appearing in over 200 movies and TV shows. He is a regular on FOX's new "THE MINDY PROJECT" and will return to "GLEE" and "CALIFORNICATION," on which he plays Stu Beggs, as well. A book version of some of his stories, "The Dangerous Animals Club," is being published by SIMON AND SCHUSTER this month.
