The Big Interview returns to AXS TV for a star-studded fourth season, premiering on Tuesday, January 12th at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT. Hosted by legendary newsman Dan Rather, the series features exclusive and in-depth conversations with some of entertainment’s brightest stars, as Rather gets them to open up about their iconic lives and legacies as only he can. Past guests who have appeared on The Big Interview include a wide variety of acclaimed entertainers such as filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and Aaron Sorkin; Nashville star Connie Britton; and music legends Gregg Allman, Patti LaBelle, Charley Pride, and Bryan Adams.
This season’s lineup presents even more intimate discussions with some of the industry’s biggest names, kicking off on January 12th with GRAMMY-winning singer, songwriter, and acclaimed Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty, as he talks about the early days of CCR, the creative process behind “Born On The Bayou” and “Proud Mary,” and much more. Then, on January 19th, Rather sits down with Oscar-winning actor Benicio Del Toro, the fan-favorite leading man whose acclaimed filmography includes unforgettable roles in hits such as Traffic, Sin City, The Usual Suspects, and the upcoming blockbuster Star Wars: Episode VIII. And, on January 26th, Rather welcomes beloved country music hero Willie Nelson, the celebrated author, poet, actor, and activist whose trademark vocals have powered a library of classics such as “Always On My Mind,” “On The Road Again,” “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain,” and “Whiskey River,” among others.
“Dan Rather is one of the most influential names in journalism, and AXS TV is proud to bring him and his inimitable style back for a fourth season of The Big Interview,” said Michele M. Dix, AXS TV’s senior vice president, programming and development. “Packed with even more impressive sit-downs, this new season promises to continue the series’ unparalleled tradition of cutting past the glitz and glamour, as Rather gets these influential figures to open up about their rarely-seen personal lives and legendary careers like only he can.
