CBS to Present Bruno Mars’ First Prime-Time TV Special


CBS and Atlantic Records have partnered with multiple Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and director Bruno Mars to premiere his first prime-time TV special, Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo, produced by Fulwell 73 Productions.

The special will air on CBS Television Network on Wednesday, November 29, at 10 p.m. Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo was taped at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York City. Mars and his band the Hooligans also take to the streets, visiting with, singing to and entertaining locals. The special, which will continue to tape in the coming weeks, features never-before-seen stage performances. Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo is produced by Fulwell 73 Productions, with executive producers Mars and Ben Winston.

“For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world,” said Winston, co-founder of Fulwell 73 and executive producer on the special. “To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night.”

“Bruno Mars is the ultimate live performer of this generation,” said Jack Sussman, the executive VP of specials, music and live events at CBS Entertainment. “He is the very definition of event television. He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history. We at CBS are proud to be broadcasting his first TV special.”
