Elvis bio on the Sundance Channel, from the info on their new series "Spectacle":
Costello is also working on a major television interview and musical performance series, entitled SPECTACLE: ELVIS COSTELLO WITH... which will be transmitted late in 2008 on Sundance Channel in the United States, CTV in Canada and Channel 4 in the United Kingdom. The program's eclecticism and depth reflect its uniquely qualified host, a songwriter and performer comfortable in almost every genre imaginable; a musicologist of formidable breadth and knowledge; a contributor to Vanity Fair; and a noted wit whose stint as guest host on The Late Show with David Letterman won rave reviews.
Starts December 3rd on the Sundance Channel, Costello with Sir Elton John. Upcoming episodes include Tony Bennett, Bill Clinton, James Taylor, Lou Reed, Julian Schnabel, Rufus Wainwright, The Police, and Renee Fleming. My TiVo is all set to season-pass. I really like his music - I listen more to Elvis Costello than any other artist by a factor of three, and I enjoy his live show banter and story-telling. Will I like him as a show host? It's still too soon to know. But I'll keep you posted.
