Liza, Michael to costar in TV special

Liza Minnelli is planning to produce a television special in which she will appear with Michael Jackson, the U.K.’s Teletext website reported today.

According to the report, the special, tentatively titled Liza’s Back: All Star Tribute, will be based on her current stage show and will be co-produced by Jackson and Minnelli‘s fiance David Gest.

Teletext also reported that Whitney Houston and Mikhail Baryshnikov have been asked to perform on the show, which has not yet been sold to a network.

In an interview, the performer said that she was able to make a comeback because “I’m a thoroughbred. It’s an inner strength my parents gave me, especially my mother. Yes, I do get tired of being Judy Garland‘s daughter, but she’s my guardian angel.”
