BIO CHANNEL LOOKS AT THE EARLY YEARS OF THE 'KING OF ROCK N' ROLL' IN "ELVIS: RETURN TO TUPELO" PREMIERING THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 AT 9 PM ET

Two-Hour Special Hosted By Kris Kristofferson

Bio Channel takes a look back at the early years of the man who came to be known as the "King of Rock N' Roll" in the two-hour special Biography: Elvis in Tupelo premiering on Thursday, September 11 at 9 PM ET/8 PM CT/10 PM PT with narrator Kris Kristofferson.

Elvis Presley sent shockwaves around the world in the 1950s and 1960s with his shaking hips, snarling lips and new approach to music. His emergence as a rock'n'roll icon represented a seismic shift in the culture wars over race, sex and class. However, the real story of Elvis lies at the heart of a small town named Tupelo, Mississippi where the "King of Rock N' Roll" started out.

This Biography special traces Elvis' life from his birth during the depth of the Depression in Tupelo, to his move to Memphis and his formative high school years, to his early struggles to launch a music career, and his triumphant return to Tupelo for a concert in 1956, on the same stage where eleven years prior he had infamously lost a talent competition.

The two-hour special will feature interviews with old friends, family members, co-workers, schoolmates and others who knew Elvis who provide personal insights into his early years. Viewers will learn how shy Elvis was, how hard it was to convince him to perform, how he was taunted and picked on by others and about his father's incarceration and his mother's relentless campaign to get him paroled.

Using an uncovered wealth of never-before-seen home movies, photographs, recordings and performances with Elvis and the Blue Moon Boys, Bio Channel illustrates how a man from meager beginnings turned into one of the greatest cultural forces of the twentieth century.

Elvis: Return to Tupelo premieres Thursday, September 11 at 9PM ET exclusively on Bio. Check your local listings; Bio is available on DirecTV Channel 226 and Dish Network Channel 119.
