The two-hour special is in tribute to Presley's '68 Comeback Special, which marked his return to music after a years-long hiatus.
Additionally, footage and interviews with his wife, Priscilla Presley, and Steve Binder, the director of the original special, plus a special appearance from his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, will also air.
