Upcoming Documentary on APB’s Dan Rather’s Career as a Journalistic Titan
12 Apr 2021
A documentary is currently in the making on legendary journalist and news anchor, APB speaker Dan Rather. Original Productions will cover his career as a journalistic titan. The documentary, which is directed by One9, who was the director of Nas: Time Is Illmatic, and Jessica Sherif, who worked on Dan Rather Reports, will offer unrestricted access into Rather’s journey of becoming one of the most emphatic forces in journalism.
With more than 60 years spent chronicling our world and nation, few can match the authority, experience and perspective that the famed newsman brings to almost any subject. From politics, the media, current events and our country’s most pressing issues to inspiring words of wisdom on leadership, education, social justice, civic involvement and the importance of philanthropy, Rather speaks from the heart and treats audiences to a memorable encounter with a living legend. The documentary will show the evolution of American journalism through Rather’s work, who was a witness to the birth of the civil rights movement, Watergate, and the current social upheaval, and now is a star to both millennials and Gen Z.
