Turner Classic Movies has pacted with the estate of Johnny Carson to produce Carson On TCM, a showcase of Hollywood interviews from Carson’s three decades as host of The Tonight Show — many of which have not been seen since their original airdates. The deal licenses 50 interviews from the Carson Entertainment Group archives, and the network plans a summer 2013 launch. The list includes more than 20 Oscar winners including Bette Davis, Henry Fonda, William Holden, Gregory Peck, Jimmy Stewart and Elizabeth Taylor. The series will be curated by Peter Jones (Johnny Carson: King of Late Night). Here’s a peek:
