BBC set to resurrect 'Frost Report'

LONDON, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- The BBC plans to resurrect the 1960s TV series "The Frost Report " for a one-time special next month, the British broadcaster said Saturday.

The comedy helped introduce comedians such as Michael Palin and John Cleese to the general public but lasted only 28 episodes. Cleese and Palin later went on to form the comedic group Monty Python, which created a long-running TV series and several memorable movies.

The program also was a successor to the popular series "That Was The Week That Was" and served as inspiration for the series "The Two Ronnies."

"Frost Report" host Sir David Frost, along with all other surviving cast members, will reunite for the one-time special and the finished product will air March 24, the BBC said.
