Who will play Johnny Carson in NBC miniseries?
NBC is developing a miniseries about the life of US talk show host Johnny Carson. But who will play the plum role?
They’re already being mentioned in the same paragraphs as stories on a new NBC miniseries about the life of US talk show host Johnny Carson.
Based on an upcoming biography Carson the Magnificent: An Intimate Portrait by Bill Zehme, the drama will cover Carson’s three-decade run hosting The Tonight Show from 1962 to 1992, and will include his childhood in Nebraska, his life outside the limelight and friendships made during his career.
Zehme will executive produce the project with John Davies (A Comedy Salute to Andy Kaufman).
Casting is yet to be announced.
