We’re thrilled to announce that SHOWTIME has acquired the star-studded documentary produced by Jay Z and directed by Oscar winner Ron Howard MADE IN AMERICA, world premiering on television exclusively on SHOWTIME on Friday, October 11th at 9:00 pm ET/PT.
Last year, Grammy Award-winning music icon Shawn “JAY Z” Carter united the biggest names in music (with a few notable locals) to perform at a star-studded, multi-genre, two-day Budweiser “Made in America” festival in Philadelphia. He then approached Oscar-winning filmmakers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard to join forces and produce a film chronicling the inspirational event. The result is the highly anticipated documentary MADE IN AMERICA. Headlined, envisioned and curated by JAY Z, directed by Howard, and produced by award-winning producers RadicalMedia and Participant Media, the film features performances and interviews with a diverse roster of chart-topping musicians, including Gary Clark Jr., D’Angelo, Dirty Projectors, The Hives, Janelle Monáe, Odd Future, Rita Ora, Passion Pit, Pearl Jam, Run-D.M.C., Santigold, Jill Scott, Mike Snow and Kanye West. It will debut at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival Saturday, September 7th.
