ABC in partnership with TIME will bring the annual TIME100 list of the world’s most influential people to life with a special television event.
For the first time since the iconic list’s inception, viewers will get an entertainment-filled inside look at the leaders, creators and everyday heroes comprising the 2020 list ahead of its TIME print debut.
“TIME100” will reveal the full 2020 list by category—Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Icons and Titans—featuring clips and exclusive interviews with each honoree. The lead up to the full reveal will include musical performances, a history of the iconic TIME100 list, recaps of the biggest stories of 2020 thus far, as well as honorary tributes and appearances from TIME100 alumni. Last year’s honorees included Naomi Osaka, BTS, Greta Thunberg, Michelle Obama, William Barr and Bob Iger, executive chairman of The Walt Disney Company and chairman of the board of directors, among others.
