For the third time, the Stand Up To Cancer fundraiser is coming back with another star-studded event!
It'll actually be simulcast commercial-free on ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC on Friday, Sept. 7 at 8/7c. Cable networks including HBO, HBO Latino, Bio, Lifetime Movie Network, Logo, MLB Network, mun2, Palladia and VH1 will also carry the fundraiser.
Banding together and working with enemy to fight a common enemy??
Unfortunately, Laura Ziskin (who produced the last two) passed away after a battle with breast cancer in 2011. We're happy to hear, though that Gwyneth Paltrow will be taking her place.
Here's what Gwyn said:
"This broadcast has become a global call-to-action for all those touched by cancer. Like so many people, I know what it's like to lose a family member to this disease, and I'm honored to stand up in my father's memory."
We hope it's as big of a hit as it should be this year!
Cancer is a jerk, and we can't wait until the day when we've crushed it!
