“I’m Dying Up Here”: Nicole Ari Parker & Stefania LaVie Owen Set To Recur On Showtime Series

Time After Time alumna Nicole Ari Parker and Stefania LaVie Owen (Chance) are set for recurring roles on the second season of Showtime drama series I’m Dying Up Here.  The fictional I’m Dying Up Here, based on the book by William Knoedelseder, explores L.A.’s famed ’70s stand-up comedy scene. It delves into the inspired, damaged and complicated psyches of a fictional group of competitive but close-knit comedians mentored by Goldie (Melissa Leo), a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist, but nurtures her comedians with tough love. Parker will play Gloria Whitfield, a recently divorced, successful and well-respected producer of Soul Train who becomes romantically entangled with one of the comics. Owen will portray Amanda Robbins, Goldie’s estranged, troubled daughter. After running away from home when she was 17, Amanda reappears in Goldie’s life and exposes her mother’s Achilles heel at the most inopportune time. It is our pleasure to provide our technical support to the post production crew and can’t wait to check this season out!
