Sid & Judy, a new documentary about Judy Garland told through the memories of her third husband, Sid Luft, will debut on Showtime October 18 at 8 PM ET; check local listings.
The film, from director Stephen Kijak (Stones in Exile, We Are X) and producers Diane Becker and John Battse, is narrated by Emmy winner Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Oscar nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh (Patrick Melrose).
Sid & Judy, which premiered at San Francisco's Frameline Festival in June, explores the career and personal struggles of Garland through rare concert footage, never-heard-before voice recordings, and personal photos, as she navigated the tumultuous decade with her confidant, manager and, third husband: Luft.
John Kimble, Philip Sandhaus, Bryan O’Connell, Joel Gotler, and Eric Skinner serve as executive producers. The documentary will screen at Outfest Los Angeles July 27 at the Ford Theater in Hollywood.
A separate biopic, featuring Renée Zellweger as Garland and Rufus Sewell as Luft, will be released in September.
