Kevin Frazier and Brooke Anderson, co-hosts of "The Insider," will anchor "The Thanksgiving Day Parade on CBS," which will be broadcast live Nov. 22 from 9 AM-noon ET.
The special will feature portions of the 86th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as well as performances by country music superstar Martina McBride and the casts of the Tony-winning Broadway musicals Once and Newsies.
Among those who will also be part of the telecast are Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain and actor Dan Stevens, who star in the Broadway revival of The Heiress; Emmy Award-winning actor Ed Asner, currently starring in Grace; and Emmy winner Henry Winkler, who was recently seen in Broadway's The Performers.
For the second consecutive year, Broadway and country music star Laura Bell Bundy will offer an additional viewpoint of the parade as its "on-the-street" reporter.
Emmy Award-winning producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss are executive producers for the CBS program. Weiss also directs.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
