LOS ANGELES, May 10 (UPI) -- CBS says it is organizing a televised tribute to "The Young and the Restless" star Jeanne Cooper, who died in Los Angeles this week at the age of 84.

The special is to air on the network May 28.

"Cast members, friends and family of the beloved actress will gather on set next week to shoot a celebration of the life of their late friend," CBS said in a news release Friday. "Cooper, the Emmy Award-winning actress who portrayed Katherine Chancellor for more than 39 years, is the show's longest-running cast member."

"Jeanne Cooper was a legend and we want to give her the tribute she deserves," Angelica McDaniel, senior vice president of Daytime CBS, said in a statement. "The cast will honor their longtime friend, family member and co-worker in the greatest way possible, as we celebrate her life and vibrant spirit and share it with the audience who loved her as much as we did."
