Filming on Stage 33 at CBS Television City in Los Angeles, the show’s original soundstage, Burnett, will reminisce about her favorite sketches, Q&As with the studio audience, guest stars, her memorable wardrobe and show bloopers, as well as the tremendous effect the show continues to have on television today as a true pioneer of sketch comedy.

“I can’t believe how fast the time went, and what makes me the happiest is that so much of the funny stuff we did still holds up today and we can share it with generations to come,” said Carol Burnett. “What a great ride!”

“‘The Carol Burnett Show’ was a comedy showcase that was years ahead of its time.  If social media existed then, clips from the broadcast would have quickly gone viral,” said Leslie Moonves, Chairman & CEO, CBS Corporation. “We are very proud of the show’s significant place in CBS’s legacy as well as in television history, and we look forward to this primetime celebration of incredible talent, led by the incomparable Carol Burnett.”

The special will also feature original cast members Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner, costume designer Bob Mackie, as well as other comedians, comic actors and friends, including Jim Carrey, Kristin Chenoweth, Stephen Colbert, Harry Connick Jr., Bill Hader, Jay Leno, Jane Lynch, Bernadette Peters, Maya Rudolph and Martin Short, among others, who will join Burnett to discuss how the revolutionary series paved the way for them and impacted their careers.

Dolly Parton’s ‘Christmas of Many Colors: Circle Of Love’ Nominated For Emmy Award

 

DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS OF MANY COLORS: CIRCLE OF LOVE NOMINATED FOR EMMY AWARD

‘Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle Of Love’ receives Emmy nomination in the “Television Movie” category! In the two-hour movie, the Partons, a family of humble means living in the mountains of Tennessee, face a devastating event that challenges their will. But when they experience a bewildering Christmas miracle, the Partons are drawn closer together than ever — with deepened faith and love for one another. Alyvia Alyn Lind, Jennifer Nettles, Ricky Schroder, and Gerald McCraney co-starred in the holiday movie ‘Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love,’ which aired on NBC, with Dolly Parton making a special guest appearance.

“I am so very proud and excited to have “Christmas of Many Colors” be nominated for an Emmy award,” says Dolly Parton. “Special thanks to my partner and executive producer Sam Haskell, a wonderful cast and crew, Steve Herek (our producer) and Pamela Long for a great script. And a special thanks to all of the many fans that watched it.”

“This project for me was a celebration of the family and the beautiful story of Miss Dolly Parton. Each day I played Avie Lee Parton was a joy. For “Christmas of Many Colors” to be nominated and celebrated further by the Emmy’s, thrills me,” adds Jennifer Nettles.

The 69th Emmy Awards will telecast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Sunday, September 17 (8:00-11:00 PM ET/5:00-8:00 PM PT) on CBS. Stephen Colbert will serve as host. The 69th Emmy Awards is produced by White Cherry Entertainment. Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner are executive producers; Weiss is director; and Chris Licht, executive producer of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, is a producer.
