CBS will honor late, comedic legend Carl Reiner this Friday by airing two colorized episodes of the “Dick Van Dyke Show.”
The special, called The Dick Van Dyke Show-Now in Living Color! A Special Tribute to Carl Reiner, will feature two episodes that were hand picked by Carl Reiner.
The first will be “Coast to Coast Big Mouth,” where Laura accidentally lets out big secret on national TV. That episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series in 1966.
The other episode will be “October Eve.” In this episode, Reiner plays an artist who paints Laura.
As both creator and co-star, Reiner personally oversaw the colorization of the episodes.
In addition to the airing of those episodes, Turner Classic Movies will pay tribute to Reiner on July 28th by showing a marathon of his movies.
Reiner passed away from natural causes on Monday, he was 98.
