David Geffen: American Masters

Sunday, August 23, 8 p.m. on Vermont PBS Plus
Monday, August 24, 3 a.m. on Vermont PBS Plus
Notoriously press and camera-shy, David Geffen reveals himself for the first time in this unflinching portrait of a complex and compelling man. His far-reaching influence -- as agent and manager, record industry mogul, Hollywood and Broadway producer, billionaire philanthropist -- helped shape American popular culture for the past four decades. He launched the early successes of Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Jackson Browne, Tom Cruise and Guns N' Roses; he co-founded DreamWorks, the first new Hollywood studio in more than 50 years; he produced "Cats" and "Dreamgirls"; he is one of the largest contributors to the fight against AIDS and has become an important political voice. This dealmaker extraordinaire is witty, self-aware and candid. He and everyone from Yoko Ono and Cher, Frank Rich and Maureen Dowd, Stephen Spielberg and Barry Diller, David Crosby and Neil Young, Elton John and Rahm Emanuel illuminate his story.
