Fubble Entertainment's sitcom “I’ve Got a Life in Kalamazoo” — which is currently in development by the local production company — will film a live staged reading at The Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago this weekend.

“I’ve Got a Life in Kalamazoo"

“I’ve Got a Life in Kalamazoo” includes an impressive cast: Vicki Lewis, whose credits include “NewsRadio,” Broadway’s “Chicago” and “Finding Nemo,” as well as multiple Emmy- and Golden Globe-winner Ed Asner, Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominee Marion Ross, Tony-award winner Gregory Jbara and two time Emmy winner Patrick W. Ziegler, co-founder of Fubble Entertainment.

“Rarely do audiences get a chance to be a part of the sitcom development process this early on — and with such a dynamic cast, no less,” said Teresa Thome, co-founder of Fubble Entertainment.

“I’ve Got a Life in Kalamazoo” is about Nilah Hoyer (Lewis), a small-town singer/performer.

In the midst of a mid-life crisis, Hoyer decides to push her career to the next level with help from her best friend, who is living the fabulous life in Chicago. A turn of events keeps her in Kalamazoo, however, where she's needed to care for her aging parents.

Fubble Entertainment co-founders Thome and Zeigler are the creators of the Emmy winning web series “Backstage Drama," and the pair received a national daytime Emmy nomination as executive producers of the children’s television show “Come On Over!”

The event

The live staged reading will take place at The Museum of Broadcast Communications, at 360 N. State St. in downtown Chicago, with readings scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CT on Saturday, April 13 and 2 p.m. CT on Sunday, April 14.

Tickets are on sale now at LifeInKzoo.com and range from $22 to $155.

Some pricing includes VIP options to meet and dine with the cast. All audience members will be given the opportunity to provide feedback.

Proceeds will benefit The Museum of Broadcast Communications.
