Most TV shows are on hiatus until the fall, but that doesn't mean that fans have to miss out on seeing their favorite small screen stars all summer.

Rashida Jones ("Parks and Recreation"), Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"), Jim Parsons ("Big Bang Theory") and more haven't disappeared into Netflix and re-runs just because their shows are between seasons. They can be seen in other projects, appearing in movies, musicals and plays.

For example, Jones' fans might be used to seeing her as Ann Perkins, but this summer she is starring in the film "Celeste and Jesse Forever." And Parsons is now performing live in the Broadway production of Mary Chase's "Harvey."

From Kristen Bell to Zooey Deschanel, here's a guide to where some of TV's biggest stars can be seen this summer:
