Nicole Kidman and Nadia Comaneci To Lead the Series on PEOPLE Video Platforms, wishing Good Luck to the Tokyo Olympians and Paralympians, and Benefiting Angel City Sports Charity.
/PRNewswire/ Hollywood has long been inspired by the Sports Industry and vice versa, but rarely do these two worlds have the chance to mix and mingle. In its 8th Annual Program, following an unprecedented year of world delays and cancelations, the GOLD MEETS GOLDEN platform will return with a series of Inspiring One-on-One Conversations between Hollywood Actors and Athletes of Professional, Olympic and Paralympic disciplines. Topics for the discussions will include comparing various crafts and techniques, mutual passions for art and exercise, and the challenges and hidden rewards of the past whirlwind year in Sports & Entertainment.
Confirmed Conversation participants include: Nicole Kidman with Legend Gymnast Nadia Comaneci; Billy Porter with Track & Field High Jumper Vashti Cunningham; Sasha Baron Cohen with UK Diver Tom Daley; the cast of Apple TV’s TED LASSO (Hannah Waddingham, Brett Goldstein, Nick Mohammed, Juno Temple and Phil Dunster) with World-Cup winning Soccer players Alex Morgan and Crystal Dunn; Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas with Paralympic runner Roderick Townsend & Olympian Ty-Butts Townsend, Matt Bomer with Paralympic racer Tatyana McFadden; and more names to be released as the Olympics continue. The series will also feature a special Paralympic-inspired musical performance of Diane Warren and Laura Pausini‘s Oscar-nominated “Lo Si / Seen”, with special guest Blake Stadnik (“This is Us”), who will represent the visually impaired community.
The new Gold Meets Golden Series will be launched in partnership with PEOPLE video platforms including the OTT streaming network PeopleTV and broadcast television show PEOPLE (the TV Show!), which will release the content during the Tokyo Olympic & Paralympic Games in July and August 2021. This effort is particularly poignant this year, given that it will be the first Games in history in which foreign spectators will not be allowed to come cheer for their home teams, leaving the athletes and para-athletes needing more creative support than ever.
The Series will benefit recurring Gold Meets Golden charity Angel City Sports, an LA-based adaptive sports organization that provides access to needed equipment, coaching and training for aspiring youth and adult Paralympic hopefuls. See www.AngelCitySports.org for more info on the beneficiary. Donors can text GMG to 71777 or use this link below to donate to Angel City Sports.
