John Ratzenberger, the actor who portrayed Cliff Clavin on “Cheers,” launches a crowdfunding campaign on FundAnything.com to raise funds for a “John Ratzenberger’s American Made,” reality series that will explore manufacturing in America.

His FundAnything campaign will cover all production costs for the first five episodes of his series. Visitors to http://www.FundAnything.com/AmericanMade have several contribution levels to choose from, each with its own personal incentives ranging from recording John’s voice on your voice mail to receiving a signed copy of a script from Cheers and even receiving a producers credit on the series.

About John Ratzenberger
A multi-Emmy-nominated actor and accomplished screenwriter, director, producer and author, John Ratzenberger may be best known for playing mail carrier Cliff Clavin on the long-running NBC sitcom “Cheers.” Though never a postman in real life, he did work as a carpenter, archery instructor and oyster boat crewman, and also created and starred in the Travel Channel series “Made in America,” which spotlighted U.S.-made goods and workers. Along with work in feature films, from major studio blockbusters like “Superman” and “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back,” to independent films like the recent drama “The Woodcarver,” animation has been a natural home for his versatile vocal talents. He also holds the distinction of being the only actor to participate in every Pixar film ever made. He is currently a recurring character on the FX hit TV show, “LEGIT,” and when not filming, splits his time between speaking about the looming skilled worker crisis in America, and spending time with his family in his home state of Connecticut
