The Love Boat cast members will share behind-the-scenes stories and reveal their favorite episodes in a reunion that will appear on CBS’s daytime talk show The Talk. The gathering is scheduled for Tuesday as well as singer Jack Jones.
Gavin MacLeod, Bernie Kopell, Ted Lange, Fred Grandy, Lauren Tewes and Jill Whelan will all be on hand for the get-together, during which they’ll swap behind-the-scenes stories from the series and share their favorite episodes and guest stars.
Along with the trip down Memory Lane, MacLeod, who played Capt. Merrill Stubing on the iconic series, will discuss his new book, “This is Your Captain Speaking: My Fantastic Voyage Through Hollywood, Faith & Life.”
Jack Jones, who sang the theme song, will also be on hand to perform the tune live for the studio audience.
“The Love Boat,” which premiered 36 years ago and ran from 1977 until 1986, followed the romantic and often comic tales of the passengers and crew of a cruise ship.
THE TALK features a panel of well-known news and entertainment personalities who examine current events, pop culture, contemporary issues, family, celebrity and the trending topics of the day. The daily one-hour series is co-hosted by Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler. The hosts swap stories, challenge each other on issues and engage the studio audience and viewers at home about events in the headlines and their own homes.
Show segments include guest interviews with entertainers and newsmakers, musical performances, how-to demos and appearances from extraordinary people with stories that engage and inform. The show was developed by Gilbert, who also serves as executive producer.
