For those of you longing to see Liza Minnelli in her glory, Showtime will air her Emmy-winning ''Liza With a Z'' special in 2006, around the time it will also be released on DVD.
The great Bob Fosse directed the special, which Showtime says hasn't been televised since 1972. The aging print is being restored and the soundtrack spruced up for Dolby 5.1 Stereo.
Showtime executives did not have a clear explanation of why ''Liza'' has been sitting in a vault for so long, but I'm glad they're pulling it out. I got excited just seeing a clip from it at a press conference.' And the clip wasn't even from the restored version.
