A and E Honors Patrick Swayze With 'The Beast' Marathon
All the episodes from season 1 will be aired in a single night, followed by a special remembrance of the late actor.


As the network that airs Patrick Swayze's last TV project, "The Beast", A&E is dedicating a day full of tributes. On Wednesday, September 16, the cable network is going to present a marathon of "The Beast" starting from 2 P.M. to 6 P.M. ET/PT along with an encore at 11 P.M. ET/PT.

Additionally, a special called "Bio Remembers: Patrick Swayze" is scheduled to air at 10 P.M. ET/PT. "We are saddened by the loss of one of our generation's greatest talents and a member of the A&E family," said Bob DeBitetto, President & General Manager of A&E. "Patrick's work on 'The Beast' was an inspiration to us all. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with his wife Lisa and his entire family during this difficult time."

Although being diagnosed with stadium 4 pancreatic cancer early 2008, Patrick Swayze signed a deal for a starring role on "The Beast". He plays a mischievous Baker who trains his young partner Dove in undercover cases. The show premiered in January this year but got canceled in June due to Swayze's health concern.

Swayze died on Monday, September 14 whilst surrounded by his family.
