The Police will appear on an episode of "Spectacle: Elvis Costello with...," Canadian television network CTV said today. The episode will be taped in New York next month.

The timing of the taping will coincide with the end of the veteran trio's immensely successful reunion tour, which finishes with a show in New York in August. The television farewell will air as part of CTV's new talk/performance series, set to premiere later this year in Canada, the United States (on Sundance Channel) and in the U.K. (on Channel 4). FremantleMedia Enterprises distributes the series internationally.

Costello, who opened some shows on this leg of the Police's reunion tour, will discuss aspects of the legendary group's career, according to CTV. CTV also announced Motown legend Smokey Robinson will tape an episode for the series in August.

"The Police and Smokey Robinson - it doesn't get any better than this," said Susanne Boyce, CTV's president of creative, content and channels, in a statement. "Spectacle continues to make good on its promise to deliver an unpredictable and unprecedented television experience."

Others scheduled to appear on the show include Tony Bennett, Lou Reed, former U.S. president Bill Clinton and Elton John, who is also one of the program's executive producers.
