Beth Behrs is back in “The Neighborhood,” but she also has launched a community of her own.
While continuing to play wife, mother and school principal Gemma on the Monday CBS sitcom, the “2 Broke Girls” alum also has a relatively new venture in “Harmonics With Beth Behrs.” The podcast showcases other creative people, many also in the arts (such as country singer Mickey Guyton and author Glennon Doyle), in explorations of how such pursuits can have an effect on the given person’s wellness.
“It’s been this great, selfish endeavor for me,” the ever-friendly Behrs allows, “because I get to ask people I admire all these questions I would want to know the answers to. And I think that many other people would want to know, because it makes them feel less alone.
“I’ve been so much more vulnerable on this podcast than I ever planned on being in the media,” notes Behrs. “I think that happened because I really wanted a space for my guests to be open, and I’m really proud of the conversations we’ve had and the brave things said. Some guests have talked about overcoming sexual assault through the power of music … things I never dreamed were possible to address in this way.”
Behrs is no stranger to doing multiple seasons of a project, having made “2 Broke Girls” for six and now being in her third year of “The Neighborhood.” After completing her first round of “Harmonics,” she’s ready for more.
“I’m proud of the show, and I love doing it every week,” Behrs confirms. “We’re going to start Season 2 soon, and I’m really happy about it.”
