Show of the week: American Masters: Seriously Funny—The Comic Art of Woody Allen
PBS's two-part portrait of Woody Allen explores his life and career.
Though notoriously private about his creative process, Woody Allen allowed cameras onto the set of 2010’s You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger for this two-part portrait of his life and career. The filmmakers also follow Allen to his childhood home in Brooklyn and to the 2011 Cannes premiere of Midnight in Paris, Allen’s highest-grossing film yet. Diane Keaton, Martin Scorsese, Sean Penn, and Mira Sorvino are among the many friends and collaborators interviewed. Sunday–Monday, Nov. 20–21, at 9 p.m., PBS; check local listings
