Ben Vereen Featured in TV Line Interview with B Positive Executive Producer Chuck Lorre!

“One of the best parts about this job is you get a ringside seat to watch great actors work, and Ben Vereen is a legendary performer. It was an opportunity to show not only his extraordinary abilities as an actor, but to take a moment and show that [caring for Peter] is not just a job for Gina. This isn’t business, it’s personal. The one thing this giant corporation [that wanted to acquire Valley Hills] couldn’t offer was this personal connection — that human being there who knows you and cares for you, not as a number or as a source of income, but as a human being.” Read the full interview here!
