‘20/20’ Airs on Friday, Sept. 16 (9:01–11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC, Next Day on Hulu

Dr. Larry Rudolph and his wife, Bianca Rudolph, were avid big game hunters, often traveling the world to bring back trophies of exotic animals they had killed. In 2016, the pair headed to Zambia, where Bianca was hunting a leopard. Tragedy struck when Bianca died of a shotgun blast to the chest on the last day of the trip. Local authorities ruled the death accidental, and over the next few months, Larry collected approximately $4.88 million in life insurance. In the wake of Bianca’s death, several tips were called into the FBI, notifying agents that Larry had been carrying on an affair with an employee at his dental clinic, Lori Milliron, for more than 10 years.

“20/20” takes an inside look at the investigation into Bianca’s death, featuring an exclusive interview with Brian Lovelace, a former bartender who says he overhead Larry tell his mistress that he killed his wife for her. Chief national correspondent Matt Gutman traveled to Zambia to interview Spencer Kakoma, the game scout who accompanied the Rudolphs on their hunt, and Musawa Musese, the parks investigator who was one of the first at the crime scene. Additional interviews include Anna Grimley and Sherry Houck, former employees at Larry’s dental clinic; Tim Runco, Larry’s former dental partner; Rachel Anders, the mother of Lori’s grandson; Ron Arendt, a lifetime member of Safari Club International; David Markus, Rudolph’s lead attorney; and John Dill, Lori’s attorney; and the jury foreperson.

Following the news special, The Wonderful World of Disney will air, for the first time on broadcast television in more than two decades, a presentation of the original film (9:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), which is available to stream on Disney+.

The classic Disney live-action film marked a groundbreaking moment in television history, introducing America’s first Black Cinderella (Brandy) and Fairy Godmother (Whitney Houston). The ABC News Studios reunion special explores how the revolutionary made-for-television musical expanded society’s view of the term “princess” and includes interviews with original cast members, as well as rare behind-the-scenes footage with Whitney Houston.

The one-hour program, airing during Disney’s World Princess Week, also dives into the film’s positive impact on representation in Hollywood and features interviews with stars who share a connection to the project, including Tony®, GRAMMY® and Emmy® Award-winning actor and singer Billy Porter, who played the gender-neutral fairy godmother, Fabulous Godmother, in the 2021 Amazon Original “Cinderella” reimagining; actress Jade Jones, who plays Belle in the off-Broadway tour of “Beauty and the Beast”; and singer-songwriter and choreographer Todrick Hall, a “Cinderella” superfan who has drawn inspiration from the film throughout his career.

“Cinderella: The Reunion, A Special Edition of 20/20” features interviews with the original production team from “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella,” including producers Debra Martin Chase and Neil Meron, costume designer Ellen Mirojnick and more.

“We’re delighted that the 25th anniversary of this landmark incarnation of ‘Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella’ is being celebrated on its original network,” said Imogen Lloyd Webber, SVP at Concord Theatricals, on behalf of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization. “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s unforgettable score is truly timeless — still enchanting listeners 80 years after their partnership began and 65 years since their ‘Cinderella’ first charmed the largest audience in television history.”

About “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella”
“Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella” stars Brandy in the title role and Whitney Houston as “Fairy Godmother” alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Victor Garber, Natalie Desselle Reid, Bernadette Peters, Paolo Montalban, Jason Alexander and Veanne Cox.

Originally premiering on Nov. 2, 1997, to 60 million viewers on ABC’s “The Wonderful World of Disney,” “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella” became an instant fan favorite, acclaimed by critics and audiences alike and earning seven Emmy Award nominations. Celebrated for its diverse representation, sweeping musical acts and unforgettable songbook, the 1997 film features an incredible array of beloved and original songs by the iconic songwriting duo Rodgers & Hammerstein, including “Impossible,” “In My Own Little Corner,” “Ten Minutes Ago,” “A Lovely Night,” “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?” and more.

The televised movie musical debuted on Disney+ in February 2021.

In “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella,” when Cinderella’s cruel stepmother prevents her from attending the Royal Ball, she gets some unexpected help from her Fairy Godmother. The 1997 movie was directed by Robert Iscove, written by Robert I. Freedman, and choreographed by Rob Marshall. Whitney Houston, Debra Martin Chase, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron served as Executive Producers. Chris Montan was a producer, and Robyn Crawford was an associate producer.

“Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella” was originally presented on television in 1957, and was the only musical written by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II for the medium. Starring a 21-year-old Julie Andrews, “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella” was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium at the time, drawing an astonishing 107 million viewers. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams come true, and so was the second remake in 1997. A new Broadway version with a Tony-nominated book by Douglas Carter Beane premiered in 2013.
