Lifetime is the latest UK broadcaster to make a change to their schedule in order to commemorate the life of Robin Williams.
The female-skewing channel has made a slight amendment to their schedule on Sunday August 17th and they will now be airing a biography of the late actor/comedian at 2:45pm and again at 9:30pm. The piece in question was produced in 2008 as part of the Biography series which aired on the now defunct Biography Channel.
Per Lifetime, the biography examines the career of Williams from his early success on Happy Days and Mork & Mindy, through his booming feature film career in the 1990s and early 2000s. In addition, to exploring his early life and career, the bio also examines his charity work, and the infectious energy that bought him an army of adoring fans.
A world renowned actor and comedian, Robin Williams was found dead earlier this week at the age of 63. Following a preliminary forensic examination, authorities in California have deemed Williams’ cause of death to be suicide. In addition to Mork & Mindy, Williams’ better known credits include Good Will Hunting, Mrs Doubtfire and Jumanji. He also recently starred in the CBS comedy The Crazy Ones alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar.
