The highly-anticipated debut of Anderson Cooper’s new daytime talk show, titled, simply, Anderson, added another intriguing element to its September 12 premiere: The family of Amy Winehouse will make their first public appearance and conduct their first interview since the passing of the Grammy-winning singer.

On his Twitter, Cooper announced that Winehouse’s mother, father, and brother, as well as her boyfriend Reg Traviss, will sit down with the host to talk about her life. Winehouse passed away on July 23 at the age of 27.

The series premiere of Anderson, which airs in syndication, will also feature a taped interview with the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, in which the shocking death of cast member Russell Armstrong, who committed suicide last month, will be discussed.
