CHICAGO -- Steppenwolf Theatre will finally makes its public television debut in a new documentary, "Steppenwolf Theatre Company: Twenty Years on the Edge," slated for a prime-time broadcast later in the year. Produced by HMS Media, the one-hour program profiles the troupe whose "rock 'n' roll" theater has shaken up a lot more than this city. Accompanied by a musical backdrop donated by Bruce Springsteen and Beth Metheny, filmed interviews will feature such now-stellar Steppenwolf members as Gary Sinise, John Malkovich, Laurie Metcalf, John Mahoney and Kevin Anderson.
PBS will announce airdates once corporate underwriting has been determined.
