There’s a Catch to Diane Sawyer’s Interview With Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

As we reported previously, ABC News’ Diane Sawyer has snared the first television interview with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords since she was shot in the head in January in an apparent assassination attempt.

But even though she has reportedly agreed to the interview, Giffords may not appear on camera, reports TVNewser.com. ABC News said the extent of her participation depends on how far along she is in her recovery, the piece adds.

Sawyer will talk with both Giffords and her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, off-camera, according to the Tucson Sentinel. The Sentinel story reports that the interview with Giffords is less than a done deal — despite ABC’s press release indicating that Giffords and Kelly "will share their remarkable story for the first time since the tragic shootings in Tucson, Ariz., on Jan. 8, 2011."

The special is slated to air Nov. 14 at 10 p.m. and is tied to the release of a book from Giffords and Kelly called "Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope."
