TNT scores with 1970s ‘Shaft’

Cabler to run marathon, Roughcut.com will also provide interviews

Three days before the new version of Paramount’s “Shaft” hits the multiplexes, TNT will host a 10-hour “Shaft” marathon featuring a discussion with the new movie’s star, Samuel L. Jackson; its director, John Singleton; and the original John Shaft, Richard Roundtree.

The comments of the three guests will be woven in and out of TNT’s cablecast of the three original movies in the franchise: “Shaft” (1971), “Shaft’s Big Score” (1972) and “Shaft in Africa” (1973). Also in the mix are two 90-minute episodes starring Roundtree from the short-lived “Shaft” TV series that ran on CBS between October 1973 and August 1974.

The marathon begins Tuesday at 8 p.m. TNT’s Web site Roughcut.com will also include interviews with the principals and sweepstakes trivia contests.
