“Hit Record on TV With Joseph Gordon-Levitt” will have some more familiar faces when it returns to Pivot this week. This year, the variety series will welcome guest stars Seth Rogen, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Zac Efron, Chris Messina, Ben Schwartz, Evan Goldberg and Todrick Hall.
Each weekly episode of the show addresses a theme. Writers, musicians, illustrators and animators from around the world are encouraged to collaborate to create short films, songs, music videos and animated works based on that topic. The season-two premiere episode, “The Dark,” features a little “black magic” from Kaling and Messina.
“Once again, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the entire ‘Hit Record on TV’ team have put together a series that is unexpected and risky, with music that is unforgettable and animation that makes it one of the most visually dynamic series on television,” said Belisa Balaban, exec VP of original programming for Pivot. “Fans of the show will also appreciate that this season reflects the work of even more amazingly talented artists from around the world, collaborating with each other and celebrities alike.”
Season two of “Hit Record on TV With Joseph Gordon-Levitt” premieres June 12 at 10 p.m. on Pivot. The first season received an Emmy in the category of outstanding creative achievement in interactive media – social TV experience.
