Tonight at 10pmET on a special edition of Showbiz Tonight, CNN, HLN, and corporate sibling Entertainment Weekly present “Great Reunions” which will reunite the casts from memorable TV shows and movies including “Lord of the Rings,” “Pretty in Pink,” “Back To The Future,” “The West Wing,” “Will and Grace,” “Roots,” and others.
Showbiz Tonight’s AJ Hammer and Brooke Anderson co-host the show with more than a dozen casts being reunited, the special will have cast interviews and behind-the-scenes videos from the reunion photo shoots with casts.
“I’m really looking forward to the ‘Back to the Future’ and ‘The West Wing’ reunions,” Hammer told TVNewser, “‘Back to the Future’ really stands the test of time. Michael J. Fox was perfect for that role. ‘The West Wing’ set the bar so high that nobody has since tried to create a show inside the oval office.”
When asked if there was any tension amongst any of the cast members, Hammer told TVNewser “everybody just enjoyed reminiscing.”
The half-hour show, which took several months to put together, will also have an interactive component for Facebook fans of CNN.
At least one first is expected on the special and more in the press release is after the jump…
