Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo is to air on CBS Nov. 29.

This will be the Grammy winner's first prime-time television special. Part of it was taped at the landmark Apollo Theater and around New York City. Mars is expected to continue filming during the next few weeks.

"For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world," Ben Winston -- who, alongside Mars, is serving as executive producer on the hour-long program -- said in a statement Tuesday. "To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night."

"Bruno Mars is the ultimate live performer of this generation," added Jack Sussman, executive vice president of specials, music and live events for CBS Entertainment. "He is the very definition of event television. He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history. We at CBS are proud to be broadcasting his first TV special."
