The show may come from CBS News, and recall the legacy of Edward R. Murrow, but it looks like there’s a lot of fluff ahead for the first Person To Person with co-hosts Lara Logan and Charlie Rose. Next week’s special will go inside the homes of George Clooney, Jon Bon Jovi, and Warren Buffett. Here’s the release:
CBS News’ iconic PERSON TO PERSON will air as a television special on Wednesday, Feb. 8 (8:00 PM, ET/PT). Meet today’s legends and newsmakers, not in public, but in private – inside their homes, inside their lives. George Clooney gives Logan and Rose a tour of his Los Angeles home, while Warren Buffett opens the door to his Omaha office, and Jon Bon Jovi welcomes PERSON TO PERSON to his magnificent home on the Navesink River in New Jersey, including his private recording studio. Actor George Clooney, billionaire Warren Buffett and rocker Jon Bon Jovi share their most prized possessions and the unforgettable stories behind them.
“What sets our broadcast apart is the unique access,” says Executive Producer Susan Zirinsky.
“When someone opens their home, they’re sharing a part of themselves that traditional interview programs can’t reach,” added Co-Executive Producer Judy Tygard.
When he originated the broadcast in 1953, Edward R. Murrow took viewers into the homes of icons like John and Jacqueline Kennedy, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, and Elizabeth Taylor. Today, more than 50 years later, the allure of a rare glimpse behind the public personas of some of our most beloved and respected cultural icons remains. PERSON TO PERSON shows you how Hollywood’s most popular leading man unwinds away from the lenses of the paparazzi, where perhaps the world’s most successful investor conducts his billion-dollar deals, and the home studio where one of the world’s most legendary rockers composes and records his music.
Building on Murrow’s legacy, Logan and Rose will bring PERSON TO PERSON to a new generation. Susan Zirinsky and Judy Tygard are the co-executive producers of the broadcast.
