The world lost a comedy giant when Carl Reiner passed away at the age of 98 this week. Deadline reports that CBS will honor the late entertainer by airing two colorized episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show.
Reiner won five Emmy Awards for his work on the show. The back-to-back episodes are set to air on Friday, July 3rd, beginning at 8:00 PM as part of CBS’ “Now In Living Color! A Special Tribute.”
In “Coast to Coast Big Mouth” from season five, Reiner is in his recurring role of comedian and Rob Petrie’s boss ‘Alan Brady.’ Then, in season three’s “October Eve” (below), we’ll see him as temperamental painter ‘Sergei Carpetna.’
In addition to being a talented actor, Carl Reiner was also prolific as a writer, producer, and director. On July 28th, Turner Classic Movies will also pay homage to Reiner with a marathon of movies that he directed, including Enter Laughing, All of Me, and Oh, God! among others.
