The annual television special will air on the New York City network Oct. 25 at 7:30 PM ET; check local listings.

"Broadway Backstage" will spotlight the new productions on Broadway this season and will also check in with Broadway Barks creators Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore. The 30-minute program, according to press notes, will also "provide viewers with an inside look at what goes on behind-the-scenes at some of Broadway's most popular shows."

  Tom Wopat received Tony nominations for his performances in A Catered Affair and in the Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun (opposite Bernadette Peters). He has also appeared on Broadway in I Love My Wife, City of Angels, Guys and Dolls, Chicago, 42nd Street and Glengarry Glen Ross. Perhaps best known for his seven-season run on "The Dukes of Hazzard," Wopat has released several albums with CBS and Capitol Records. His latest disc is entitled "Dissertation on the State of Bliss."
