Robin Williams Remembered – A Pioneers of Television Special on WKAR

Portrait:Robin Williams

Tuesday, September 9, 9-10pm - WKAR-HD | This one-hour special will feature Williams’ last full-length television interview, including never-before-seen footage of his comments on life and work. 

Williams shares stories about his first stand-up act, his desire to be a serious dramatic actor and his tireless efforts to entertain U.S. troops overseas. The program also includes an exclusive, new interview with Williams’ former “Mork & Mindy” co-star Pam Dawber, who shares for the first time on camera since his death, her memories of working with him.  Dawber was the actor who worked most closely with Robin Williams, and for the longest stretch -- more than four years.  The two remained friends long after the show’s end and had spoken just a few weeks before his death.
