Vintage interviews by Johnny Carson with Hollywood legends from the archives of NBC’s “Tonight Show” will return to television next year, TCM announced.
The cable channel is unveiling “Carson on TCM,” a showcase of interviews from Carson’s long run as King of Late-Night. TCM licensed 50 interviews from the Carson Entertainment Group archives, including many that have not aired since they first premiered.
The channel will begin televising the material in summer 2013.
Among the subjects are Hollywood legends such as Bette Davis, Henry Fonda, William Holden, Elizabeth Taylor and Gregory Peck, comics including Chevy Chase, Mel Brooks and Robin Williams, and an interview with 7-year-old Drew Barrymore.
