Showtime will premiere the documentary Made In America on October 11. The pic chronicles the two-day music festival put together last September by Jay-Z that included performances by Kanye West, Pearl Jam, Run-DMC and other chart-toppers. Jay-Z then partnered with Imagine Entertainment to produce the pic, which will have its world premiere at Toronto on September 7 and follows the people and artists surrounding the one-off event. Imagine’s Ron Howard directed, and RadicalMedia and Participant Media also produced. The deal was negotiated by CAA on behalf of the production. “As soon as we saw this film we knew it was a perfect fit for Showtime,” Showtime president of entertainment David Nevins said. “Ron Howard and Jay-Z have crafted an inspirational portrayal of American resilience, drive and creativity, interwoven with an incredible showcase of musical talent.” Check out the trailer:
