3-DVD SET, THE VERY BEST OF THE JIMMY DEAN SHOW, VOL 1

Through his national television variety series, Jimmy Dean -- American singer, television host, actor and businessman -- was the first to bring country music to the mainstream in the 1960’s. After nearly 50 years of being sealed-off in the vaults and marking what would be Jimmy Dean’s 85th birthday, The Jimmy Dean Show episodes from 1963-1966 are resurfacing for the first time in a 60-minute PBS special, scheduled for broadcast during August 2013 PBS special programming.

The special is hosted by long-time friend, entertainer, actor and musician Roy Clark who will introduce the artists from the series with anecdotes, stories and laughter too. No stranger to television, Clark a 20-year veteran host of the series Hee Haw, along with co-host Buck Owens, made regular appearances on Dean’s show and will be featured in the PBS special too. As Jimmy Dean once said of Clark, "Everybody loves him. When he walks out on stage with his bungling attitude as though he didn’t know what was going to happen next, the audience is immediately on his side. It’s like cheering for the underdog or the hometown boy.”

The Jimmy Dean Show, initially called Country Style aired live in Washington, DC, starting in early 1957 before it was picked up by CBS nationally under the name The Morning Show as a half-hour series. Starting in September 1963, ABC carried three seasons of the hour-long show featuring popular music artists and comics to round out its variety format, including the first television appearance by Jim Henson’s piano-playing Muppet, Rowlf the Dog. The series began in black and white, and moved into color in the fall season of 1965. The 60-minute fundraising special will be a compilation of some of these moments from the three-year broadcast and feature entertainment from some of the most renowned country music legends and comedians.

About Jimmy Dean. Jimmy Dean was born in Olton, Texas on August 10, 1928. Throughout his exciting career as a country star with #1 hits like “Big Bad John” winning him a Grammy Award and selling more than one million copies, Dean moved into the national television host role of The Jimmy Dean Show, presenting country entertainers of the day, and then onto acting in the movies. His most well-known role was as Willard Whyte in the 1971 James Bond movie, Diamonds Are Forever. 1969 marked the year in which Jimmy and brother Don founded the successful Jimmy Dean Sausage Company, which today continues under the Sara Lee Corporation. In 1976, Dean achieved one million in sales with his tribute to his mother and to mothers everywhere with the song, “I.O.U.,” which quickly became a Top 10 country hit. Prior to his death, he was nominated for the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010, although he was formally inducted posthumously. Dean was a father of three children; Garry, Connie and Robert with his first wife, Mary Sue Dean and grandfather to two granddaughters. He died June 13, 2010 of natural causes, survived by second wife Donna.

About Roy Clark. In the '70s, Roy Clark symbolized country music in the U.S. and abroad. Between guest-hosting for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and performing to packed houses in the Soviet Union on a tour that sold out all 18 concerts, he used his musical talent and his entertaining personality to bring country music into homes across the world. As one of the hosts of TV's Hee Haw (Buck Owens was the other) for more than 20 years, Clark picked and sang and offered country corn to 30 million people weekly. He is first and foremost an entertainer, drawing crowds at venues as different as Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and the Opry. His middle-of-the-road approach has filled a national void, with Clark offering country that was harder-edged than Kenny Rogers but softer and more accessible than Waylon Jennings. Among his numerous vocal hits are "Yesterday, When I Was Young" and "Thank God and Greyhound." Instrumentally he has won awards, for both guitar and banjo. Clark has landed spots on The Tonight Show and the sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies, where he played both Cousin Roy and Big Mama Halsey and co-starred on the silver screen with Mel Tillis, in the comedy Uphill All the Way.
