Lara Spencer and Josh Elliott spoke with the cast of the long-running CBS comedy, MURPHY BROWN at the taping of the TV Land Awards in New York City. The interview aired today, April 20 on GOOD MORNING AMERICA, on the ABC Television Network.
MURPHY BROWN is the recipient of this year's TV Land Impact Award. The show infused hot topic current events and shined a light on real-life career and personal issues. The revolutionary show starred Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award-winning actress Candice Bergen as title character Murphy Brown, a reporter for successful primetime news show "FYI." With the help of her friends and co-workers - Frank Fontana (Joe Regalbuto), Corky Sherwood (Faith Ford), Jim Dial (Charles Kimbrough) and Miles Silverberg (Grant Shaud) - Murphy was a star journalist who truly had it all, even becoming a single mother later in the series. The show created some of the most memorable episodes with help from guest stars and fellow "TV Land Awards" honorees and presenters Aretha Franklin and Katie Couric. "Murphy Brown" aired on CBS from 1988 to 1998.
The "TV Land Awards" pays tribute to classic and contemporary luminaries of television, music and movies. The 90-minute telecast hosted by Kelly Ripa will feature exhilarating musical performances and will reunite some of the most iconic celebrity TV casts. The "TV Land Awards" 10th Anniversary will air on Sunday, April 29 at 9pm ET/PT.
