The special movie event is only airing for one night and is packed with clips from White’s most famous roles including Golden Girls, SNL, Hot in Cleveland, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Superbowl commercials and other career highlights.

Boettcher said in a press release, “We didn’t want this day to pass without bringing together all the people that love her, from her co-stars and friends to her many millions of fans of all ages, to celebrate her 100th birthday with an entertaining and loving look at what makes Betty a national treasure!” 

While White is loved by many around the world, her legacy and records add to why fans love her so much. She was the first woman to produce a national TV show, the first woman to star in a sitcom, the first producer to hire a female director, and the first woman to receive an Emmy nomination. And she is the first woman to ever appear on television, with a performance on a broadcast in the 1930s.

“Betty White is a beloved cultural icon. We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate this milestone birthday with her and fans around the county,” said Daren Miller, Fathom Events VP, Programming, Strategy & Business Affairs.
