NEW YORK, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson and Tracy Morgan are to appear in "Eddie Murphy: One Night Only," a tribute to be taped in Los Angeles next month, Spike TV said.

Arsenio Hall, Brett Ratner, Charlie Murphy, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Martin Lawrence are also to attend the Nov. 3 taping at the Saban Theatre.

The salute will air on the cable network Nov. 14 and will include short films, musical performances, sketch comedy. It will culminate in an appearance by Murphy.

"There is no better time than the present to honor a man who has for three decades touched the hearts of millions through laughter," Murphy's brother and the program's executive producer Vernon Lynch said in a statement.
