The Motion Picture & Television Fund has drafted Emmy-winning producer, actor and writer Keegan-Michael Key to host the organization’s seventh annual “Reel Stories, Real Lives” on Nov. 8 at the Directors Guild of America in Hollywood.
The special event — presented by Ford Motor Company — features actors telling stories that highlight the impact of MPTF on the entertainment community. “Reel Stories, Real Lives” receives additional support from Delta Air Lines and City National Bank.
“‘Reel Stories, Real Lives’ is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the broad range of support MPTF provides to all members of the entertainment community by telling very personal stories, and in turn, sets the stage to discover the many ways we can help our unique community thrive in this unpredictable industry,” said MPTF president and CEO Bob Beitcher.
Close to 500 industry leaders and VIP guests are expected to attend. Last year’s participants included Matthew Broderick, Josh Hartnett, Chrissy Metz, Jessica Rothe, Will Fetters and host Kumail Nanjiani. The event will be produced by Courtenay Valenti, Kevin McCormick, Cate Adams and Tara Schuster.
As for Key, he’s coming off a role in Fox’s The Predator and next has roles in The Lion King and Dolemite Is My Name.
