LAS VEGAS (AP) - Comedy king Jerry Lewis plans to film a television special for PBS.

The Las Vegas Review Journal reports ( https://bit.ly/Qor4SC) that the 86-year-old entertainer is returning to the spotlight Nov. 18 at The Orleans Hotel & Casino.

PBS plans to broadcast “An Evening With Jerry Lewis _ Live from Las Vegas!” in March around Lewis’ birthday.

Lewis has been busy preparing a Broadway musical version of “The Nutty Professor” based on the 1963 movie that Lewis directed and starred in.

That production has been thrown into uncertainty with the recent death of composer Marvin Hamlisch, who did the score.
