Ben Stiller gives his parents their own online talk show

What did you get your dad for Father’s Day? Whatever it was, it sucked compared to Ben Stiller’s gift: The Les Grossman dreamweaver recently struck a deal with Yahoo to produce a current affairs show starring his parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, once more proving that the largesse of nepotism doesn’t always have to end bitterly; sometimes we all benefit. The elder Stillers will reprise their chemistry as a comedy double act in a series of short web episodes, shouting and lovingly bickering about things happening out there in the real world. The as-yet-untitled show should start popping up on Yahoo later this year.
