This year, though, the team behind one series is using the resources they normally put into an Emmy push for an entirely different cause: Planned Parenthood.
Former The West Wing star Allison Janney and Chuck Lorre, the creator of her new TV show Mom, are throwing their support behind women's health organisation Planned Parenthood by spearheading a new fundraising campaign.
The Republican-controlled U.S. Senate is now considering legislation that would block low-income patients from going to Planned Parenthood for preventive care, like birth control and cancer screenings.

Writer Chuck Lorre, whose work also includes "The Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men", and actress Allison Janney announced the donation on behalf of the show Thursday, according to the report. "Generous support from our community fuels this work, and we are honored that the team behind 'Mom" is launching this campaign at this critical time'. She was nominated in the same category previous year.
"Mom" follows Janney and Faris as mother-and-daughter duo Bonnie and Christy after the latter, a newly sober single mother, moves home.
Over the past seasons, "Mom" has seen storylines involving topics including teen pregnancy, drug abuse, gambling addictions, domestic violence and homelessness.
Variety reported Thursday that the Chuck Lorre-produced program is redirecting the quarter-million dollars it otherwise would have spent on promoting itself in the run-up to the Emmy Awards nomination deadline to the organization, which also provides free or low-priced contraceptives and contraceptive counseling.
Janney has always been an active supporter of Planned Parenthood. Lorre is a long-standing benefactor of the Venice, California Family Clinic, where he established a family health center in his father's name.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
