Encore To Do Documentary On Jerry Lewis

Jerry Lewis, who turns 85 today, is the subject of a feature-length original documentary, which is currently in production for a premiere on Encore in late summer.

The documentary, from director-producer Gregg Barson, will focus on the influence that Lewis has had on the entertainment industry and his relevance today via interviews with Jerry Seinfeld, Alec Baldwin, Billy Crystal, Chevy Chase, Woody Harrelson, Carol Burnett, Richard Lewis, Carl Reiner, Richard Belzer, John Landis and others. Barson has been filming Lewis for the past three years and has had access to the comedian’s personal archives.
