Former Disney chief Michael Eisner is among the guests scheduled to appear in a
CNBC two-hour special, The Business of Hollywood, airing Friday at 12:00
noon, the channel said Wednesday. The special will originate at the Kodak
Theatre in Hollywood on the set of Sunday's Oscar ceremonies and host Bill
Griffeth is due to receive a behind-the-scenes tour from Gil Cates, executive
producer of the Oscars telecast. Veteran director Richard Donner is also
scheduled to be interviewed for the program, which, according to a network
press release, will explore "everything from movies that take on social issues
and stigmas to what theater owners are doing to lure movie-lovers away from DVD
releases and into the theaters."
