Tom Bergeron to Give Sneak Peek of New TV-Pilot at NH Film Festival
Tom Bergeron will give a special sneak peek of The Messenger on Friday, Oct. 13th at 3:40 p.m. at 3S Artspace.
Bergeron will join Director Ben Shelton for the special NHFF event. The Messenger was written and directed by Shelton and starring Bergeron, Jean Smart and RJ Walker. The project is described as a nuanced dark comedy/drama about the Messenger of Death, in the tone of a classic episode of The Twilight Zone.
As a longtime festival guest, Bergeron shared a special message about the upcoming sneak peek with NHFF fans on his Instagram.
Shelton’s screen credits include his recent work on the Netflix original film Candy Jar, starring Christina Hendricks, Jacob Latimore and Helen Hunt. He is also the creator of the scripted TV comedy series Impress Me.
Bergeron, best known for his work hosting Dancing with the Stars, and America’s Funniest Home Videos, got his start in the entertainment business working for WHEB radio in Portsmouth in the early 1980s and is a regular special guest at the NH Film Festival. This year he will again participate in the Annual Comedy Panel (Saturday, 9-10 p.m., at 3S Artspace).
