PBS is planning an hourlong tribute to Robin Williams that will air next week, the network announced.
Robin Williams Remembered — A Pioneers of Television Special will feature previously-unseen clips from Williams' final interview for Pioneers of Television, which aired this past spring, as well as interviews with some of his colleagues, including his friend and former Mork & Mindy co-star Pam Dawber.
"We were fortunate to sit down with Robin Williams quite recently for the Pioneers of Television series," the show's executive producer, Steve Boettcher, said in a statement. "We wanted to share with PBS viewers the Robin that we saw — the very unassuming, caring, genuine and gentle man who took his acting seriously, but was able to make others laugh. We hope this special provides more insight to this incredible man, in his own words."
Dawber made her first acting appearance in 14 years last season when she reunited with Williams on CBS' The Crazy Ones.
Williams took his own life on August 11.
Robin Williams Remembered premieres Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 9/8c on PBS. Will you watch the special?
