Jay Z’s new documentary, Made in America, has been picked up by Showtime and will air on the network this fall.
The film, produced by Jay Z and Oscar-winning director Ron Howard, will be centered around the rapper’s role as curator of his Made in America music festival.
“The festival showcases 20 pre-eminent artists that speak to the new generation,” said Howard.
Made in America will air for the first time ever at the Toronto film festival on September 7th and will later air on the Showtime network.
“As soon as we saw this film we knew it was a perfect fit for Showtime,” said David Nevins, President of Entertainment at Showtime. “Ron Howard and Jay Z have crafted an inspirational portrayal of American resilience, drive and creativity, interwoven with an incredible showcase of musical talent.”
Made in America will make its Showtime debut on October 11th.
