The great Woody Allen is the focus of a new documentary to air on PBS as part of the American Masters series.  He’s an icon of the world spanning half a century yet he’s such a recluse, it’s hard for anyone to really say anything about the man that isn’t hear say or drivel – until now.

Directed by Robert Weide (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and produced by Brett Ratner (pardon?) the two-part, three-and-a-half-hour film follows Allen’s life from his Brooklyn childhood to present day.  I would be interested to hear what Allen has to say about his own work and the work of others in the industry.  One of my favorite works of Woody Allen’s isn’t even a movie, it’s this book.  I read that on a four day bus ride to NYC, true story.

Weide had access to Allen for over a year, following the filmmaker from the London shoot of You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger to the Cannes premiere of Midnight in Paris.  As you will see in the trailer he also had a chance to interview Allen’s friends.

Woody Allen: A Documentary will air Sunday, November 20 from 9-11 PM and Monday, November 21 from 9-10:30 PM on PBS.  Watch the trailer below:
