US President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama will now be a part of NBC’s “Roll Up Your Sleeves”, a Covid-19 vaccination awareness programme, Comcast Corp’s NBC said on Tuesday.
The hour-long-special, created by media company ATTN, will air on April 18 and aim to encourage Americans to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
ATTN had previously said former First Lady Michelle Obama and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda will also appear on the programme.
Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey will interview Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, on the special, ATTN had said.
The show, which will include a number of comedy acts, informative packages and real-life stories, is being produced in partnership with pharmacy chain Walgreens Boots Alliance.
