Almost 60 years after Edward R. Murrow took viewers into the homes of icons like John and Jacqueline Kennedy, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, and Elizabeth Taylor, CBS News’ “Person to Person” is back as a television special airing Wednesday, at 8pmET/PT.
The modern day hosts, Lara Logan and Charlie Rose get a tour of George Clooney’s Los Angeles home. Warren Buffett opens up his Omaha office, and Jon Bon Jovi welcomes the show to his New Jersey mansion.
“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,” adds Co-EP Judy Tygard.
“Person to Person” debuts on the same night that NBC’s “Rock Center” moves to its new night, Wednesday’s at 9pmET/PT.
