Tony nominee Stanley Tucci and Tony winner Daveed Diggs, in their animated roles of hotelier Bitsy Brandenham and her assistant Helen, respectively, find themselves in a slippery situation in this week's episode of Central Park. Watch an exclusive clip above.
The third season of the animated musical series, from creators, writers, and executive producers Loren Bouchard, Josh Gad, and Nora Smith, premiered September 9 on Apple TV+, dropping the first three episodes, to be followed with an episode weekly for the remainder of the season.
The story centers on Central Park manager Owen Tillerman (voiced by Tony winner Leslie Odom, Jr.) and his family (Kathryn Hahn, Tituss Burgess, and Emmy Raver-Lampman). In a constant campaign to make people fall in love with the New York City park, Owen often finds himself at odds with socialite Bitsy Brandenham, who wants to buy the park for real estate development. Gad, a Tony nominee for The Book of Mormon, also appears in the series as its narrator Birdie, a Central Park Busker. Original cast member Kristen Bell returns in a different role for Season 3, playing the sister of Hahn's Paige Tillerman.
The series features songs by resident songwriters Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson, as well as guest songwriters such as Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and Open Mike Eagle.
