NEW YORK, June 12 (UPI) -- Celebrities give their best performances for a good cause in an original series, "Celebrity Charades," on U.S. cable television's AMC.

Participants in the five episodes include Stanley Tucci, Lorraine Bracco, Julianna Margulies, Bebe Neuwirth, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Billy Baldwin, Hank Azaria, Rosie Perez and Carson Kressley.

The show, taped in a New York City loft apartment, premieres June 20 at 9 p.m. EDT and runs for five consecutive nights. Actor Chad Lowe, director-actor Bob Balabanm of "Gosford Park" and Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank are the executive producers.

The series puts a new spin on the old parlor game as celebrities mime movie titles for their individual charitable causes and later dinner is served and the guests mingle.
