Mel Brooks: American Masters
Sunday, Sept. 8, 9:30-11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, 7-8:30 p.m.
Mel Brooks has been in show business for over 60 years and has earned more major awards than any other living entertainer.
This film profiles Brooks and his career… from his first public success in the early 1960's with the "2000 Year Old Man" albums he recorded with Carl Reiner to his incredible run of cult classic films, which included "The Producers", "Blazing Saddles", and "Young Frankenstein".
This film marks his first full participation in any biography project, as he is a very private man and has been a virtual recluse since the 2005 death of his wife of 41 years, Anne Bancroft.
