Princess Diana Subject of Second Primetime Special on ABC

The late Princess Diana will be the subject of not one but two primetime specials on ABC.  On Thursday, the network announced a two-hour telecast for May that will exclusively look at the last 100 days of her life before she died from injuries sustained in a car crash in August 1997. 

The Last 100 Days of Diana, hosted by former Nightline co-anchor Martin Bashir, will look at her only summer as a single woman, when she was newly divorced from Prince Charles and romantically involved with British Pakistani surgeon Hasnat Khan and Dodi al-Fayed, the latter of whom also died in the crash.


Bashir won a BAFTA award in 1996 for his extended interview with the princess of Wales. The two-hour special will include rare interviews with close friends and her personal staff, including her former butler, chef, bodyguard, press secretary and trainer, to reveal her mind-set as she navigated a new life, one that was still firmly in the public eye.

 The special will air Sunday, May 7 at 9 p.m.
