Funnyman Ben Stiller is set to 'meet the parents' in a new TV series - he's starring in an online show with his real life mum and dad. The comedian has recruited his parents, comedy double act Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, to appear with him in an upcoming current affairs show, which will see them discussing news items.
The trio will film short episodes, which are slated to appear on Yahoo.com at the end of the year. Yahoo Chief Marketing Officer Elisa Steele says, "Ben had a great idea, he started to talk to us and it was a good fit with Yahoo."
He recently partnered with Yahoo for an online charity campaign which raised $50,000 to build a school in Haiti. The "Meet the Fockers" star agreed a deal with bosses at Yahoo, who pledged to give the actor $1 for every Twitter.com user who clicked on an online photo he posted of himself at the Cannes Lions advertising festival in France.
