On the eve of the 45th anniversary of the premiere of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” PBS has announced a new documentary about the TV legend.
From The Dick Van Dyke Show to Robert Redford’s Ordinary People and beyond, Mary Tyler Moore has shown herself to be a gifted and versatile actor. But it was with The Mary Tyler Moore Show (which 45 years ago) that Moore had her greatest influence – showing the world that a woman could have a successful career and a rewarding life on both personal and professional levels.
Mary Tyler Moore: A Celebration features a look at her life and 50-year career and will present interviews with notable fans (like Oprah Winfrey) and professional colleagues (Dick Van Dyke, Ed Asner, Carl Reiner).
Mary Tyler Moore: A Celebration airs on PBS on Tuesday, October 13th (8/7C). For further details, follow the jump.
