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.
