Net brings back classic talker

Turner Classic Movies is developing a one-hour special version of “The Dick Cavett Show” for a September debut.

Program, to be taped before a live audience on a contemporized version of the original set from the ’70s, will feature Cavett doing an in-depth interview with Mel Brooks.

In addition, TCM has acquired rights to eight episodes of the original talkshow, featuring one-hour interviews with Robert Mitchum, Bette Davis, Ingmar Bergman, Alfred Hitchcock, Woody Allen, Groucho Marx and two with Katharine Hepburn.

Archive episodes are also slated for September. Cavett will supplement interviews with new introductions.
