Introducing the Spring 2023 CMBA Blogathon: Big Stars on the Small Screen: In Support of National Classic Movie Day!

It's almost time for the CMBA Spring Blogathon! This year's topic is "Big Stars on the Small Screen: In Support of National Classic Movie Day." Topics can be on anything related to classic film stars appearing on TV, including regular TV series, mini-series, variety shows, made-for-TV movies, or even commercials! There’s a wide-open field of small screen productions to explore! 

The blogathon, for CMBA members only, will run May 15th through May 19th. Our participants to date are listed below. If you haven't yet picked a topic, there's still time to join in the fun! Just email the CMBA Board ( with your topic choice, blog name, and preferred date for posting, if any. Because there is such a variety of topics to choose from, we won't be accepting duplicates. (Please note, however, that it's acceptable to have one topic focus on an entire series, and others that cover specific episodes from that same series.) Topic selections will be accepted in order of receipt.

To promote the blogathon on your blog, take your pick from any of the banners at the bottom of this post.

We look forward to another great blogathon!
