"Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo" will air on CBS Nov. 29.
Mars is expected to continue filming during the next few weeks.
"For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world," Ben Winston -- who, alongside Mars, is serving as executive producer on the hour-long program -- said in a statement Tuesday.
"To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night."
"He is the very definition of event television. He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history. We at CBS are proud to be broadcasting his first TV special."
