Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You

normal-lear-just-another-version-of-youBrilliant documentary on television writer/producer Norman Lear (All in the Family, The Jeffersons, Maude). Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You traces the pioneer from his earliest days as a writer for television in the 1950’s to his enormous success with legendary sitcoms in the 1970’s to his continued work in his 90’s revamping One Day at a Time for Netflix last year. Through it all as with most long-living success stories, he managed to repair his absence from his family during the heyday with years of quality time in his later life. Such an American treasure. This is a must-see. 5 out of 5.
