“CBS SUNDAY MORNING” SPECIAL FOR PARAMOUNT+ ON THE CAREER AND CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING FILMMAKER WOODY ALLEN

SPECIAL FEATURES INTERVIEWS WITH ALLEN, DYLAN FARROW AND AN EXPLORATION OF WHETHER CONTROVERSIAL ACTS DIMINISH AN ARTIST’S LEGACY

Paramount+ will stream exclusively a CBS SUNDAY MORNING special anchored by Lee Cowan featuring an interview with filmmaker Woody Allen, CBS THIS MORNING’s interview with Dylan Farrow, and a report from Erin Moriarty on controversial artists and their art in CBS SUNDAY MORNING – “The Woody Allen Interview.”

The special will be available on Paramount+ beginning Sunday, March 28.

Cowan interviewed Allen in July 2020 about his new memoir, in what is the filmmaker’s first in-depth television interview in nearly three decades. The special also includes CBS THIS MORNING’s extensive 2018 interview with Dylan Farrow, in which she details her allegations that she was abused by Allen in 1992 and denies being coached. And Moriarty explores the challenges the public faces when respected artists are alleged – or discovered – to have acted in a morally questionable manner.

Allen has repeatedly denied the allegations that have regained attention following the recent documentary series “Allen v. Farrow.” Some experts have discounted the allegations and he has never been charged with a crime.

Rand Morrison is the executive producer for CBS SUNDAY MORNING – “The Woody Allen Interview.”
