NEW YORK (AP) -- NBC News is having no luck getting Mitt Romney to participate in its prime-time special on the Mormon church.

The show's executive producer, Rome Hartman, says the hour-long episode of "Rock Center" will air as planned Thursday evening.

NBC requested an interview with Romney weeks ago but was denied. It tried again on Monday after it seemed the Republican was becoming more open to talk about his faith.

Hartman said Wednesday that many Americans know little about the church even though one of its members is on the eve of becoming the first Mormon nominated by a major political party to run for president of the United States.

Among other topics, the show will look at why so many Mormons succeed in business.
