For those who feel that real life needs to be more animated, cast members from the FX Network’s cartoon spy spoof, Archer, will provide a glimpse of worlds colliding when they bring “Archer Live” to a local stage on Jan. 11.

A PBS documentary premiering on New Year's Day traces the history of Jews' fingerprints on America's greatest shows, complete with interviews, archival performance footage, and, of course, plenty of show tunes.
