Pam Dawber, co-star of "Mork & Mindy," will pay tribute to her late friend in an upcoming documentary, "Robin Williams Remembered — A Pioneers of Television Special," which premieres Sept. 9 on PBS.

Variety reported Tuesday that never-before-seen footage from Williams' last interview will illuminate the comedian's early standup days, his first acting roles, and his commitment to entertaining U.S. troops overseas.

The one-hour special will also feature Henry Winkler, Yakov Smirnoff, Louie Anderson, Paul Rodriguez, Rick Overton, Blake Clark, Pauly Shore and George Schlatter, as well as Penny Marshall, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Stiller, Jimmie Walker, and the late Jonathan Winter — also of "Mork & Mindy" fame.

"We were fortunate to sit down with Robin Williams quite recently for the Pioneers of Television series," said the documentary show's executive producer, Steve Boettcher, in a press release reprinted by Broadway World.

"We wanted to share with PBS viewers the Robin that we saw — the very unassuming, caring, genuine and gentle man who took his acting seriously, but was able to make others laugh. We hope this special provides more insight to this incredible man, in his own words."

Donald Thoms, PBS Vice President of General Audience Programming, said that, "PBS is proud to share with viewers a celebration of this comic genius's life, through recollections from friends and colleagues, and reflections from Robin himself."
