Ben Stiller’s Parents to Host an Online News Show

Ben Stiller is developing an online current-affairs show starring his mom and dad, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, for Yahoo. The short episodes will feature the couple, who used to appear as a comedy duo act, discussing the news items of the day. "Ben had a great idea, he started to talk to us and it was a good fit with Yahoo," the site's chief marketing officer said. And with that, Ben Stiller has made the rest of us — who, uh, call our parents maybe once every two weeks (and usually when we need something) — look really bad. [BBC via Movieline]
