The month of May will feature another Elvis Presley bonanza, led by Random House division Crown's May 3 publication of the book "Elvis by the Presleys." The volume was penned by Presley's ex-wife Priscilla and his daughter Lisa Marie and will for the first time feature selections from their personal photos and memorabilia.

"Elvis by the Presleys" will be augmented by a TV special of the same name to air May 13 on CBS, featuring new interviews with Lisa Marie, Priscilla and her parents, previously unseen Presley television performances and family home movies.

A double-disc CD compilation will be released to coincide with the special and will include tracks from the show, family favorites and rare and unreleased tracks to be announced.

On May 8 and 11, CBS will broadcast the four-hour miniseries "Elvis," starring British actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Presley. The artist's family granted producers their full cooperation for the project, which will be the first biographical film to feature Presley's original recordings.

As previously reported, Presley has spent the past two weeks at No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart with "One Night" and "Jailhouse Rock," respectively.
