NEW YORK (AP) - CBS says Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will appear in his first television interview since the feature film about him and the creation of his company premiered this fall. His interview will air Sunday on “60 Minutes.”

The network said Wednesday that Zuckerberg will talk about “The Social Network,” which featured a dark portrayal of him by Jesse Eisenberg, as well as the direction he’s taking his company and his status as one of America’s most influential figures.

The interview is conducted by Lesley Stahl.

“60 Minutes” airs Sunday at 7 p.m. Eastern on CBS.
