It is being reported that there is an Eddie Murphy tribute that is being planned to air on Spike Television! The tribute will feature tons of footage and never before seen takes that have happened in Murphy’s career over the past twenty plus years.
The amazing thing about this story is that the one of the producers of this show was on board for the hosting gig that Murphy had in hand for the Oscars last season that never happened, Don Mischer. Another producer of this new show is one of Murphy’s brothers, Vernon Lynch, who most recently Exec produced Hollywood Execs.
Finally, one of our sources has leaked that there will be something very special that will happen that night, and we are guessing that Murphy may FINALLY hit the stage to go back to comedy! Let’s see what happens!
Anyway, here is the complete story from Deadline;
Don Mischer Prods. is producing the special, with Mischer, Casey Patterson, Charlie Haykel, and Vernon Lynch (Hollywood Exes) executive producing and Juliane Hare producing.
