CBS To Air Whitney Houston Special On Eve Of 2013 Grammys

CBS is set to air a special about the untimely death of Whitney Houston, which occurred on the eve of last year's Grammy Awards. "The Grammys Will Go On: A Death In The Family" will air on CBS2 on Saturday, February 9, at 10 p.m., one day before the 2013 Grammy Awards.

The special documents how the show's producers, host and artists were forced to make desperate last-minute changes to the program in the hours after Houston's death on February 11, 2012.

"This special is a very entertaining peek behind the curtain at the extra-extraordinary circumstances of last year, and how some of the biggest stars in the musical world came together for a television broadcast that will be remembered for many years to come," said Jack Sussman, CBS Executive Vice President of Specials, Music and Live Events.

"A Death In The Family" was produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures, CBS, and The Recording Academy. Ken Ehrlich and Susan Zirinsky are its executive producers.
