"Person to Person" (2012) on CBS is based on the ground-breaking interview series created by news legend Edward R. Murrow. "CBS This Morning" co-host Charlie Rose and CBS News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent and "60 Minutes" Correspondent Lara Logan have been named co-hosts of the series.

"Person to Person" will retain many of the elements that made the original so captivating. Co-hosts Rose and Logan will bring viewers into the private homes of public people - musical artists, actors, directors, political leaders and newsmakers. The freedom and spontaneity of the format will allow guests to introduce friends and family members and show off items of personal or professional significance. Guests will effectively lead the discussion as the cameras capture unexpectedly vivid and touching revelations. Conversation will be the primary focus, distinguishing the series from more traditional interview programs and news magazines. Guests for the premiere broadcast and the schedule for other broadcasts will be announced at a later date.

CBS News made television history in 1953, when Murrow began taking viewers into the homes of people whose names continue to resonate today: John and Jacqueline Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Harry Truman, Fidel Castro and John Steinbeck. Viewers saw Robert Kennedy soothing his young children, who had stayed awake long past their bedtimes especially for the broadcast; they also saw Marlon Brando playing bongos with a friend and Sammy Davis, Jr. polishing dance moves. In 2012, "Person to Person" will make history for a new generation of viewers.

Susan Zirinsky and Judy Tygard serve as executive producers.
