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.
The program explores the highs and the lows in Geffen's professional and personal life through more than 50 new interviews with his friends, colleagues and clients: Irving Azoff, Jackson Browne, Cher, David Crosby, Clive Davis, Barry Diller, Maureen Dowd, Rahm Emanuel, Nora Ephron, Tom Hanks, Don Henley, Arianna Huffington, Jimmy Iovine, Elton John, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Calvin Klein, Steve Martin, Lorne Michaels, Mike Nichols, Yoko Ono, Frank Rich, Slash, Steven Spielberg, Jann Wenner and Neil Young.
