Video: It's No April Fools Joke... "Taye Diggs Destroys Hip Hop" on ABC.com!
Plus: look for "Bruno Tonioli's Writers' Room" and "Fizbo: The Clown."

[via press release from ABC]


Based on the popularity of its Halloween inspired re-imagining of "Modern Family's" "Fizbo: The Clown," ABC.com is evolving its ABC.comedy web series to include pop culture-inspired digital shorts and show related sketches beginning with "Taye Diggs Destroys Hip Hop" and "Bruno Tonioli's Writers' Room." All three videos can be seen now at www.abc.com/abcdotcomedy. The ABC.comedy web series launched in Fall 2011, recapping highlights from ABC's immensely popular Wednesday night comedy block, and evolved in 2012 to include comedic recaps of key network dramas.

"Humor is a hallmark of the ABC Network, so it makes sense that we infuse our digital video content with as much comedy as possible," said Chris Thomes, Vice President of Disney/ABC Television Group's Digital Media Studio. "With these new web shorts, almost anything goes, as long as we're true to the brand."

In "Taye Diggs Destroys Hip Hop," actor and Broadway singer Taye Diggs moves on from "Private Practice" and into the world of Hip Hop music with rapper and YouTube sensation Destorm. But do Hip Hop and Broadway tunes mix?

"Bruno Tonioli's Writers' Room" takes a slightly different approach. The "Dancing with the Stars" judge is known for his colorful critiques. In this web short, ABC.com imagines a pressure filled back room where overwrought writers rack their brains to come up with the most over the top lines for Bruno to deliver live.

Promising that "sometimes the face you know hides the demon you don't...", "Fizbo: The Clown" is a horror film-inspired trailer that takes a somewhat more macabre approach to "Modern Family's" beloved Fizbo.

The final season of "Private Practice" premiers on DVD May 7, 2013.

"Dancing with the Stars" airs Mondays at 8:00 p.m., ET and Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m., ET.

"Modern Family" airs Wednesdays 9:00 p.m., ET.
