A conversation with Mr. Cosby about his trailblazing career in television
Bill Cosby, one of the most influential and successful performers and creative figures in television history, will be featured in a special program at Museum of the Moving Image on Tuesday, February 15, at 7:00 p.m. The program, An Evening with Bill Cosby, will consist of a conversation with Mr. Cosby about his trailblazing career in television, and will include clips from such groundbreaking network programs as I Spy, The Bill Cosby Show, and The Cosby Show, all for NBC. The Museum program will be introduced by Museum chair Herbert S. Schlosser, whose career at NBC in business and programming coincided with Mr. Cosby's breakthrough and with a number of successful NBC programs, including Julia, The Flip Wilson Show, and Sanford and Son that were among the very first network series to feature African-Americans. Mr. Schlosser was head of the NBC programming department on the West coast in the late 1960s and later became president of the NBC Television Network, and subsequently became president and CEO of the company.
