The Special Edition of "Primetime Live" Airs Tuesday, June 7 at 10:00 p.m.. ET on ABC

In a special hour-long "Primetime Live" report, Diane Sawyer talks with Brad Pitt in his first television interview this year. Sawyer also travels to Africa and reports on Pitt's recent tour, where he witnessed first-hand the devastating impact of AIDS and poverty on the continent. He tells Sawyer that he is frustrated by the fact that his personal life has been the subject of a media frenzy while this humanitarian crisis has received relatively little media coverage. "I can't get out of the press. These people can't get in the press. So let's redirect the attention a little bit," says Pitt. "It drives me mental seeing what I've seen and knowing that it doesn't show up in our news every day." This special edition of "Primetime Live" airs TUESDAY, JUNE 7 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Despite the turbulence of the past year, Pitt insists it has been a good one for him. "New chapter?" asks Sawyer. "New chapter," says Pitt. "Truly a really interesting time -- it's a shakeup year... a blossoming year... a year of re-direction, and I find it very, very interesting."

DIANE SAWYER, CHRIS CUOMO, CYNTHIA McFADDEN and JOHN QUIQONES are the anchors of "Primetime Live." DAVID SLOAN is the executive producer.
