Annaleigh Ashford Presents Updated ‘B Positive’ Opening Theme Song (VIDEO)
With the file closed on the kidney donation from Gina Dabrowski (Annaleigh Ashford) to Drew Dunbar (Thomas Middleditch), the sitcom B Positive resets Thursday just as the newly wealthy Gina (RIP, Mr. Knudson!) begins her first day as the owner of the Valley Hills retirement home.
âAt its core, the theme of the show is giving, so Gina gives it back to the people she loves most,â Ashford said. Firecracker Norma (Linda Lavin) resides with other Elders played by new cast Hector Elizondo, Jane Seymour, Ben Vereen, Supernatural‘s Jim Beaver, and Tony winner Priscilla Lopez. “It’s a collection of captions with a capital L!” Ashford gushes out.
In fact, managing the place will prove to be difficult – and comical. âGina has a knack for stepping in and messing up a situation of her own,â Ashford laughs.
Straitlaced therapist Drew practices there occasionally, counseling residents as he tries to figure out his feelings for his wacky donor. “There is a beautiful When Harry meets Sally … the mood is going, âshe said. Considering that Gina is now on the sidelines with her current beau, Eli (Terrence Terrell), since in last week’s episode we saw that he wasn’t handling his sudden cash surge well, it seems like the moment might be on the pair’s side to become more than just friends.
In addition, the theme song for the series’ Keb ‘Mo’ is also refreshed with Tony winner Ashford handling the vocals on stages of Gina dancing with professionals and real old people. âThere is synchronized swimming, bingo and a tap break where we tap to the rhythm of the walkers hitting the ground,â she says. âIt’s quite spectacular! Watch the new opening song above and prepare to be wowed!
