PBS announced today that David Geffen will be the topic of its documentary series American Masters on November 20, and that Geffen will take part in the pubcaster’s TCA panel next month. The L.A. billionaire media mogul isn’t one for the media spotlight, so participating in a TV doc is a notable piece of news — not to mention that he is taking the stage in front of a roomful of media to promote it. But PBS says it’s true: Geffen will appear alongside American Masters creator/executive producer Susan Lacy on Sunday, July 22 during the TCA summer tour at the Beverly Hilton. As for his two-hour episode American Masters Inventing David Geffen, it will take a look at the “groundbreaking media mogul who helped shape American popular culture for the past four decades as an agent, manager, record industry titan, Hollywood and Broadway producer, and billionaire philanthropist.” Yoko Ono, Cher, Stephen Spielberg, Barry Diller and Rahm Emanuel are interviewed for the piece among others.
