NBC'S "LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY" PARTNERS WITH THE NEW FORD FUSION FOR A FULL WEEK OF MUSIC FROM LOS ANGELES' LEGENDARY GREEK THEATRE

Late-night Series Kicks Off Its 12th Season with "Greek Week" Featuring Regina Spektor, Andrew Bird, Estelle and Chairlift

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - September 21, 2012 - For the second-consecutive year, NBC's "Last Call with Carson Daly," in partnership with Ford, presents "Greek Week," a full week of music performances from Los Angeles' legendary Greek Theatre, beginning on Tuesday, September 25 (1:35-2:05 a.m. ET). The late-night show will kick-off its 12th season with performances from Regina Spektor, Andrew Bird, Estelle and Chairlift.

"Greek Week" on "Last Call" will air from Tuesday, September 25 through Friday, September 28 and will include an integrated spotlight on Ford's all-new 2013 Fusion and the automobile's innovative features.

"Greek Week is such a fun and meaningful partnership for 'Last Call,'" said Daly. "It allows our viewers the unique opportunity to be transported into one of the country's great music venues."

The Greek Theatre -- a gem of an amphitheater at the city's historic Griffith Park -- has been named the "Best Small Outdoor Venue" in North America 12 times and continually presents a variety of world-renowned artists annually.

Other guests set to appear on the show throughout the week include political commentator Chris Hayes, Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan, comedian Rob Delaney and "Looper" director Rian Johnson.

"Last Call with Carson Daly" continues to push the boundaries of late-night television. Each night, "Last Call" hits the streets, taking the entire show on location, and bringing viewers along for the ride. Host Daly introduces his audience to the emerging artists and stories that viewers simply won't find anywhere else.

In recent years, "Last Call" has garnered acclaim for its gritty documentary style, emphasis on great storytelling, and status as late night TV's music tastemaker. Highlights from last season include: conversations with Newark Mayor Cory Booker, Talk Show Host Piers Morgan, filmmaker Michael Moore and "The Voice" coaches Blake Shelton and CeeLo Green; spotlights on many films from Sundance Film Festival, rapper J. Cole, Adam Anders and the director of "The Artist" Michel Hazanavicius; performances from M83, Foster The People and Thievery Corporation; TV debuts from rapper Kendrick Lamar and the breakout band fun and full shows from South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas.

"Last Call with Carson Daly" is produced by Universal Television. Stewart Bailey and Guy Oseary are the executive producers.
