Arnold Schwarzenegger's wife Maria Shriver will interview illusionist ROY HORN in an NBC special - to discuss the horrific mauling he endured during a show in Las Vegas last year (03).

The 90-minute special will involve Horn talking to Shriver about the tiger attack last October (2003) that nearly claimed his life and the difficult recovery is still going through.

Shriver - who stepped down as a DATELINE NBC reporter after her husband's election as Californian governor (OCT03) - will be interviewing Horn's doctors and SIEGFRIED FISCHBACHER - his partner in the now-ended SIEGFRIED + ROY show.

An animated comedy series based on the magicians and their animals - FATHER OF THE PRIDE - is also planned for NBC's prime-time fall schedule.
