Late TV talk show host Morton Downey Jr turned debate of current issues into a blow-smoke-in-your-face brawl when he landed on the scene in the late 1980s, pioneering the “trash TV” format and paving the way for the controversial reality talk show genre. Directed by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller and Jeremy Newberger, the upcoming documentary which premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, tells the story of Downey’s rise and fall. Check out the trailer for Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr Movie below:
