NEW YORK – ABC says it will broadcast an interview with Charlie Sheen that was recorded after the incendiary rant that led CBS and Warner Bros. Television to halt production of “Two and a Half Men” for the season.
The interview with Sheen will be broadcast during a special one-hour edition of “20/20″ at 10 p.m. on Tuesday.
Excerpts from the interview will also be aired on “Good Morning America” on Monday and Tuesday.
Production on Sheen’s hit sitcom was halted after the actor called the show’s executive producer a “contaminated little maggot” on a radio program Thursday and in a letter posted on the TMZ website.
The show’s producers have not said whether they will cancel the program.
