Decades Network will air a four-day tribute to the slapstick comic legacy of the Three Stooges, reports TVNewsCheck.
The report, in part, added:
“The event is scheduled to air Monday, Aug. 29 through Thursday, Sept. 1, in honor of the 33rd anniversary of the Three Stooges receiving their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. To celebrate, Decades will present the broadcast television premiere of a nine-part Three Stooges documentary Hey Moe! Hey Dad!, as well as a collection of Three Stooges movies. (The tribute can be seen in Baltimore and other TV markets.)
The nine-part documentary goes behind the comedic curtain and tells the backstory of all the members of the Three Stooges, covering 100 years from the perspective of narrator Paul Howard, Moe Howard’s son.
