Who Do You Think You Are? the genealogical and family history series returns on TLC on this coming Wednesday, July 23. The first episode features Cynthia Nixon, winner of Emmy, Grammy and Tony Awards who is perhaps best known from TV’s “Sex and the City.” Cynthia searches for answers in her paternal line, and truth becomes stranger than fiction when a mystery of deceit and murder slowly unfolds in relation to her 3x great-grandmother. Watch a sneak peek from Cynthia’s episode at http://www.tlc.com/tv-shows/who-do-you-think-you-are/videos/new-season.htm.
If you are in need of a serious fix of genealogy programming, this season’s premiere is sandwiched between reruns from last season in what look’s like a Wednesday marathon of genealogical research, beginning at 1 pm and continuing until 11 pm. You can check out episode summaries at http://www.tlc.com/tv-shows/tv-schedule.htm. Scroll down to Wednesday evening for all the episodes being presented.
Other celebrities who will be featured in future episodes include Jesse Tyler Ferguson; Rachel McAdams and her sister, Kayleen McAdams; Valerie Bertinelli; and Kelsey Grammer.
I would like to point out that Valerie Bertinelli is one of the stars of the “Hot in Cleveland” sitcom that appears on Wednesday evenings on the channel TVland. Her bio with filmography is available on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valerie_Bertinelli.
