Madonna to Take a Seat on 'Graham Norton Show'
Madonna will make a rare talk show appearance, discussing her upcoming film "W.E." on the "Graham Norton Show" on Jan. 14. The program airs in the U.K. on the BBC and in the U.S. on BBC America.
Madonna and her two lead actors, Andrea Riseborough and James D'Arcy, will discuss "W.E.," the drama she directed about the love affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcée Wallis Simpson.
The film will open for a one-week awards-qualifying run on Dec. 9 and then open nationally on Feb. 3. The new release date is intended to capitalize on her rumored Super Bowl halftime performance and new album. The Weinstein Co. is releasing the film.
Starting Dec. 10, BBC America will air "Graham Norton" less than 24 hours after the U.K. broadcast. Norton is also the star of BBC America's first original comedy, "Would You Rather?" that premieres Dec. 3. Based on British panel-style shows, Norton will ask comedians and celebrities to discuss ridiculous predicaments and moral quandaries.
