Michael Urie & Becki Newton's CBS Pilot 'Fun' Is Not Moving Forward

It’s sad news for Michael Urie and Becki Newton‘s CBS pilot, Fun.

According to Deadline, the network has decided not to move forward with the project which starred the former Ugly Betty co-stars.

Fun was described as a life-long love story between a brother and a sister, who always encourage each other to have fun – no matter what hardship life is currently serving up.

The show centered on the brother (Urie) returns to his Pennsylvania hometown to help his sister (Newton) run the struggling business after his emotional and devastating break-up with…show business.

While this is unfortunate news, Becki did have something pretty amazing happen to her during quarantine. See what it was…

Ugly Betty's Becki Newton Welcomes Third Child with Husband Chris Diamantopoulos!

Becki Newton just announced that she has given birth to her third child!

The former Ugly Betty actress shared the exciting news during an Instagram Live with her longtime friend and co-star Michael Urie on Wednesday (April 15).

Becki said that she and husband Chris Diamantopoulos welcomed a baby girl into the world “a few months ago.”

Michael, who recently starred on Broadway in the play Grand Horizons, visited Becki in the hospital in between performances of the show. They talked about how different it must be to give birth today than it was just a few months ago.

While Becki never formally announced the birth of her daughter on Instagram, she shared the baby girl’s photo on March 21. She captioned the below pic, “Sharing a little glimpse of Hope….”

Ugly Betty's Michael Urie & Becki Newton to Reunite for CBS Sitcom!

Michael Urie and Becki Newton are reuniting to star in an upcoming CBS comedy series set in a funeral home.

Fun was created by Sex and the City writer Michael Patrick King and former Ugly Betty executive producers Tracy Poust and Jon Kinnally.

Deadline reports that the new series is “a life-long love story between a brother and a sister (Urie and Newton) who always encourage each other to have fun – no matter what hardship life is currently serving up. FUN celebrates life – in spite of the fact that the family business is a funeral home. As they say in their family: ‘You can’t spell funeral without f-u-n.’ The brother returns to his Pennsylvania hometown to help his sister run the struggling business after his emotional and devastating break-up with… show business.”

We hope this show gets picked up!!!

Ugly Betty's Michael Urie & Becki Newton Reunite on Stage in 'How to Succeed' (Photos)

Your favorite pair from Ugly Betty, Michael Urie and Becki Newton, are starring together on stage in a one-week-only production of the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and photos have been released!

The actors played the scene-stealing assistants at Mode magazine for four seasons and now they’re acting in front of a live audience at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

Michael and Becki are starring alongside Skylar Astin, Betsy Wolfe, and more in the musical through June 10.

The show follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive. Michael actually appeared in the 2011 revival of the musical on Broadway!

“This is very exciting. I’ve always loved reading the playbills before theater starts…. I can’t believe I’m in one with all these incredible actors. What an adventure,” Becki wrote on Instagram.

Becki is currently raising money to sponsor a doll-making workshop to teach the women of the Samburu tribe in Kenya the art of doll making. This is part of an ongoing effort to support and empower the Samburu people to sustain their families and give them freedom to live the life they choose. All the money from the dolls they make and sell will go back to the mamas to feed their families. Go to GoFundMe to support the cause!
