Television special

A television special (often TV special, or rarely television spectacular) is a standalone television show that temporarily interrupts episodic programming normally scheduled for a given time slot. Some specials provide a full range of entertainment and informational value available via the television medium (news, drama, comedy, variety, cultural), in various formats (live television, documentary, studio production, animation, film), and in any viewing lengths (short films, feature films, miniseries, telethons).[1][2]
