CONCERT TO END BULLYING, a benefit performance featuring the nation’s premier vocal group and stage and screen star Taye Diggs – best known for his roles on ABC-TV’s “Private Practice” and on Broadway and feature film versions of Rent – will take place on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at The Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.
Presented by the Association of Yale Alumni and the Yale Whiffenpoofs Alumni Association the evening will benefit New Conservatory Theatre Center’s YouthAware program.

The Hollywood Reporter has shared that Taye is in a new pilot for TNT …
Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson are teaming up.
The Private Practice and Boss alums have been tapped to co-star in TNT’s Steven Bochco murder mystery pilot Murder in the First, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The drama revolves two seemingly unrelated high-profile murder cases and the subsequent police investigation, arrest and trial, offering viewers a window into the inner-workings of modern justice in an increasingly complex world.
Diggs will star as Terry Seagrave, a homicide detective who is dealing with his wife’s terminal illness. For Terry, being a cop is his one chance to live right and “do good,” and the job keeps him focused and off the sadness that tends to preoccupy his thoughts. Robertson will portray Hildy Mulligan, Terry’s partner, who is described as self-assured and sexy without knowing it. She’s divorced with a young daughter and a fearless detective who is keenly aware that her partner is grappling with a difficult situation. Both actors received multiple pilot offers this casting season.
Bochco (NYPD Blue, Hill Street Blues) will pen the pilot alongside Eric Lodal (Lawless) and executive produce. Lodal will co-exec produce the TNT-produced drama.
For Diggs, the role marks his follow-up to ABC’s Shonda Rhimes medical drama Private Practice, on which he played Sam for six seasons. The drama ended its run in January. He becomes the latest Private alum to book a pilot, joining KaDee Strickland, who is poised to star in NBC’s Peter Berg pulp thriller Bloodline; and his former on-screen wife Audra McDonald, who will co-star in CBS’ drama The Ordained, among others. Diggs (Rent, Chicago) is repped by ICM Partners.
Robertson, meanwhile, is fresh off Starz’s Kelsey Grammer drama Boss, where she played his former aide. Her former co-star, Hannah Ware, also has landed a pilot this season, booking the starring role in ABC’s Betrayal. Starz canceled the drama in November following two low-rated but critically praised seasons.
The Beverly Hills, 90210, grad is repped by Innovative Artists, Untitled and Lichter Grossman.
