NORMAN LEAR: JUST ANOTHER VERSION OF YOU
Not many people are game-changers in two different walks of life. Norman Lear became famous as the father of modern television comedy, having created "All in the Family", "Good Times", "The Jeffersons", "Sanford and Son", "Maude", and many others. Then, at the beginning of the Reagan era, he walked away from it all to form People for the American Way, one of the foremost progressive advocacy groups of the last half century. SFF alums Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (DETROPIA) tell Lear's story with a bit of help from George Clooney, Jay Leno, Russell Simmons, and many more... including, of course, the inimitable Norman Lear himself.
