Drag icon Miss Coco Peru announced a Kickstarter campaign today to film a for-profit series pilot of “Conversations with Coco,” based on her live theatre fundraising events. Her scheduled guest for the planned August 13 pilot is Lily Tomlin.
Since 2005, Coco has held live fundraisers at the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre, engaging in intimate conversations with Hollywood legends, including Liza Minelli, Jane Fonda, and the late Bea Arthur.
Coco Peru said, “I am absolutely thrilled that Lily Tomlin is scheduled as our guest for the pilot. If we reach our financing goal, we’re filming it at the Renberg Theatre, which stages programs of the Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center, named in honor of Lily and her wife. I can’t wait to talk with Lily about her amazing life and career, including recent projects like Grandma and Grace and Frankie. And if the show gets picked up, a portion of the proceeds still goes straight to The Center. Well, ‘straight’ may not be the right word, but you get my point.”
