It’s a trailer for a PBS documentary, but it’s Woody Allen. We had to put this one up. Beginning this Sunday in the US, US network PBS will air Woody Allen: A Documentary, filmmaker Robert Weide’s (Curb Your Enthusiasm) chronicle of the director behind Annie Hall, Manhattan, Purple Rose of Cairo, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Husbands & Wives, Mighty Aphrodite, Match Point, Vicky Christina Barcelona and most recently, Midnight in Paris.
Iconic writer, director, actor, comedian, and musician Woody Allen allowed his life and creative process to be documented on-camera for the first time. With this unprecedented access, Emmy®-winning, Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Robert Weide followed the notoriously private film legend over a year and a half to create the ultimate film biography.
In the US, Woody Allen: A Documentary premieres nationally Sunday, November 20 from 9-11 p.m. (ET/PT) and Monday, November 21 from 9-10:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on PBS (check local listings) as part of the 25th anniversary season of American Masters.
