Liza with a ‘Z’ – airing April 1 | 1:31 pm | 10 February 2006

Liza with a ‘Z’ has been found, restored, and it’s airing April 1 on Showtime! Bob Fosse’s lost “sixth film” was a one-shot deal with eight cameras on live television, and from the clips I’ve seen and the three(?) Emmys it won and by all accounts, is absolutely spectacular. I’m setting my TiV…..OH SHIT we don’t get Showtime. Note to self, call the satellite company. I hope this is released on DVD afterwards.
UPDATE: It’s available April 4. I don’t know why it didn’t show up when I searched earlier.

    Amy will be excited about that. She’s a big Fosse fan. The article mentions that they could do a Dolby 5.1 mix with the recorded audio, so I’m guessing it’ll show up on DVD eventually.

    And there you go! Release date is April 4th.

    Yeah – I noticed that, and a DVD release after is the natural way for them to recoup the restoration investment – and probably then some. I know a lot of fans have been more than eager to see this for a long time! Did you and Amy catch Liza on Inside the Actors Studio? She’s still just amazing.
