Who better than Carol Burnett herself to pull back the curtain on her Emmy-Award winning show that made television history for eleven glorious seasons?

''In Such Good Company'' delves into little-known stories of the guests, sketches and antics that made the show legendary, as well as some favorite tales too good not to relive again. Carol lays it all out for us, from the show's original conception, to its evolution into one of the most beloved primetime programs of its generation.

Written with all the charm and humor fans expect from a masterful entertainer like Carol Burnett, ''In Such Good Company'' skillfully highlights the elements that made the show so successful in a competitive period when TV variety shows ruled the air waves.

- the people behind the scenes, like Bob Mackie, her costume designer and partner in crime;
- Carol's takes on her favorite sketches and the unpredictable moments that took both the cast and viewers by surprise.
