Legendary comedienne-actress Carol Burnett will sit down with Barbara Walters on Friday, June 14 for a one-on-one interview.
Burnett's appearance on WABC-TV's "20/20" will mark her first interview since the death of her oldest daughter, Carrie Hamilton, from lung and brain cancer this past January. "20/20" airs in the metropolitan area at 10 PM EST on ABC Television.
Burnett and Hamilton had co-authored a play based on Burnett's best-selling memoir "One More Time," which had its debut at Chicago's Goodman Theatre in April. Linda Lavin, Frank Wood, Michele Pawk, Sara Niemietz and Donna Lynne Champlin headed the Goodman cast under the direction of Hal Prince, and they will all repeat their work on Broadway this fall.
One of television's best-known personalities, Emmy Award winner Carol Burnett has also triumphed on the Broadway stage. She was last on the Great White Way in the Stephen Sondheim revue, "Putting It Together," and her other Broadway credits include roles in Once Upon a Mattress, Fade Out — Fade In and Moon Over Buffalo. Daughter Hamilton was an actress as well, having appeared in the national tour of Rent and the television series "Fame." Her film credits include "Tokyo Pop," "Shag," "Checkered Flag" and "Cool World." For her short film "Lunchtime Thomas," Ms. Hamilton won The Women in Film Award at the 2001 Latino Film Festival.
