An "American Masters" episode focusing on media mogul David Geffen, whose Broadway producing credits include Cats and Dreamgirls, debuts on PBS stations around the country Nov. 20 at 8 PM ET; check local listings.
Entitled "American Masters: Inventing David Geffen," Emmy-winning filmmaker Susan Lacy's documentary features candid interviews with Geffen and dozens of his colleagues.
"David Geffen's far-reaching influence — as agent, manager, record industry mogul, Hollywood and Broadway producer, and philanthropist — has helped shape American popular culture for the past four decades," according to press notes. "Notoriously press and camera-shy, Geffen reveals himself for the first time in the new two-hour documentary."
Geffen narrates his unorthodox rise from working-class Brooklyn boy to billionaire entertainment power broker.
"It has been my great privilege to enter David's extraordinary world," Lacy said in a previous statement. "It's a world that touches every corner of the important, exciting artists and cultural explosions of my generation. Having David as a gracious and candid guide through this terrain was a wonderful personal experience and an absolute gift to any filmmaker."
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
