TCM turns over control to celebrities

Network expands Guest Programmer series

Turner Classic Movies is expanding its Guest Programmer series in November, turning over its evening programming to celebrity guests for the entire month.

Celebs range from Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning editorial collaborator Thelma Schoonmaker to Kermit the Frog. The lineup of programmers will also include contest winner Paul Aguirre, who will choose the films for Thanksgiving evening.

Each programmer will co-host his or her evening of films with TCM personality Robert Osborne.

Some of the selections are predictable — one of Harvey Fierstein’s choices is “The Catered Affair,” on which his upcoming Broadway tuner is based. But others are less so, like “Grindhouse” thesp Rose McGowan’s films, which include the 1962 Doris Day/Cary Grant comedy “That Touch of Mink” and the Montgomery Clift/Elizabeth Taylor drama “A Place in the Sun.”
