Allen to share all in new documentary

Curb Your Enthusiasm producer Robert Weide followed the notoriously private star for over a year, travelling with him to film sets and revisiting his childhood neighbourhood in Brooklyn, New York, and now he’s set to share all in American Masters – Woody Allen: A Documentary.

The programme will give fans a rare, intimate look into Allen’s home and professional life. It will also feature celebrity interviews with the director’s many collaborators and friends, among them Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, Antonio Banderas and Martin Scorsese.

Weide says, “Woody Allen was always the big get for me. The prolific nature of Woody’s output has provided me with an embarrassment of riches. In fact, Woody will have made three features just in the time it’s taken me to make this one documentary.”

The special will premiere on U.S. network PBS on 20 November (11).
