"Siegfried & Roy: The Miracle"
For the first time since the tragic on-stage accident that nearly took his life, Roy Horn of "Siegfried & Roy" will give an exclusive interview to Maria Shriver in this compelling one-hour special.

In addition to exclusive interviews with both Siegfried and Roy, the program will include interviews with Roy's doctors, witnesses to the accident and others close to the entertainers, many of whom are speaking publicly for the first time. NBC Universal Television Studio will produce the special. Jason Raff of NBC Universal Television Studio and Bernie Yuman, Siegfried & Roy's longtime manager, are executive producers.
