PBS show severs ties to Fred Willard after arrest
PBS show re-editing show featuring actor Fred Willard after arrest in LA adult theater
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ¯¯¯ The public television station that produces a show narrated by Fred Willard says it is ending the actor's work on the series after his arrest on suspicion of a lewd act.

Jeanne Hopkins is the spokeswoman for WGBH, the Boston public TV station that produces "Market Warriors." Hopkins says the station is removing Willard's narration from four episodes.

His voice will be replaced by "Antiques Roadshow" host Mark Walberg.



Willard is best-known as the dog-show announcer in the movie "Best in Show." Los Angeles police arrested him Wednesday night after they say the 72-year-old was spotted committing a lewd act in a Hollywood adult theater.

His representatives have not been returned phone messages.

The actor has also appeared in the mockumentary films "This is Spinal Tap" and "Waiting for Guffman."
