JAYCEE DUGARD ON DIANE SAWYER SPECIAL EDITION

Freedom: My Book of Firsts



ABC News Anchor Diane Sawyer has the first television interview with Jaycee Dugard five years after their first sit down following her miraculous rescue from captivity. Dugard will discuss adjusting to a new life and reintegrating into society, which she reveals in her new memoir “Freedom: My Book of Firsts.” The Diane Sawyer special edition of “20/20” will air Friday, July 8 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET) on ABC.



Sawyer interviewed Dugard in 2011 when she talked about her horrendous experience in captivity for the first time on the eve of the release of her first memoir “A Stolen Life.” Dugard was kidnapped when she was 11 years old, held in captivity by Phillip and Nancy Garrido for 18 years and gave birth to two daughters.



“Freedom: My Book of Firsts” will be released on Tuesday, July 12 by Simon and Schuster.



Newsmakers continue to turn first to Sawyer to share their stories including the groundbreaking and award-winning exclusive interview with Caitlyn Jenner in April 2015. In 2016, she interviewed New York Correction Commissioner Joseph Ponte about reforming Rikers Island jail; Kate del Castillo, the Mexican actress at the center of the Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán controversy; and Sue Klebold, mother of Columbine shooter Dylan Klebold.



Sawyer’s special will appear across ABC News, including “Good Morning America,” “World News Tonight with David Muir,” “Nightline,” ABC News Radio, ABC NewsOne and ABC News’ digital properties on desktop, mobile and OTT.



David Sloan is senior executive producer of “20/20.”
