The A&E networks popular Biography series will air Liberace: Too Much of a Good Thing Is Wonderful July 12. The exceedingly flamboyant performer became one of the world's best-known and most popular entertainers, all the while hiding his homosexuality. He even sued the British tabloid Daily Mirror for printing, in 1956, that the sequined pianist was a sniggering, snuggling, scent-impregnated, quivering, fruit-flavored, mincing heap of mother love, a case he, surprisingly, won. His outsized presence, however, went on to influence a generation of pop stars. This North American premiere also features interviews with many of the people who knew him well. Liberace: Too Much of a Good Thing Is Wonderful is scheduled to air at 8 p.m. and midnight Eastern and Pacific time. Check local listings.
