Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is getting a one-hour
network TV build-up on Sunday in the form of a "Katie Couric Special" on
NBC, set to air opposite ABC's Wonderful World of Disney at 7:00
(as well as CBS's 60 Minutes).
On Monday, the network posted a
plug on its Dateline website for the special, Harry Potter:
Behind the Magic, which, it said, would include an interview with
director Chris Columbus and feature "behind-the-scenes footage [to]
enable Couric to bring viewers to a place that up until now has only
existed in the imagination of fans."
A behind-the-scenes look at the making of the theatrical film, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," based on the book by author J.K. Rowling. Host Katie Couric interviews director Chris Columbus and spends time with the young "wizards in training," Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe, who portrays Harry Potter.
