Washington Montessori School in New Preston will present a program, "Behind the Scenes with Dick Ebersol," as part of its WMS Presents Series Nov. 2.

Ebersol, a renowned television executive and producer, and his wife, Susan Saint James Eberol, are the parents of three students who attended the school.

The event will include a 7 p.m. screening tribute of Ebersol's life and work in television, followed by a conversation and question and answer session with Ebersol, led by actor Jack Gilpin.

Over more than three decades in television, Ebersol stands alone as an executive who has played a prominent role in the wide-ranging fields of sports, entertainment and news.

His crowning achievement was establishing NBC Universal as the home of the Olympic Games.

In addition to his sports prowess, Ebersol, along with Lorne Michaels, whom he hired, conceived and created "Saturday Night Live."

As an independent producer, he created iconic, Emmy Award-winning programs such as "Friday Night Videos" and "Later with Bob Costas."

Ebersol even served as senior vice president of NBC News.

He retired from NBC after the London Olympics in August 2012.

Ebersol has won numerous prestigious honors and awards.

Tickets are $35 per person for the conversation and question and answer session and $55 for the conversation, question and answer session and reception.

The event at the Route 202 school is sponsored by Cramer & Anderson.
