Watch Shootout!

Shootout, also called Sunday Morning Shootout, contains interviews and conversations. The episodes aired every Sunday morning on AMC, before being syndicated, and reran with the name “Hollywood Shootout” on other networks. The TV show premiered on October 12, 2003. Peter Bart (a film producer and editor in chief of Variety) hosted with Peter Guber (a film producer who has also run multiple leading Hollywood studios). Each half hour episode typically had two sections; one in which Bart and Guber discussed various issues in the film industry, and one where they collectively interviewed that week's guest(s).

On December 16, 2008, Bart posted a blog post on the variety website that the TV show Shootout would be migrating to another time and distinct area. The last episode at its usual timeslot of the show was December 21, 2008.

Guber and Bart returned to AMC with Storymakers, which was similar to Shootout on February 13, 2009, but showing in primetime, although occasionally, while a different episode was shown on May of 2009. In 2010, Guber and Bart co-hosted a similar interview show airing on Encore In The House.

Shootout! Full Episode Guide

  • The Battle for Fallujah was the ultimate battle zone. We take you back to expose the anatomy of the warriors and high tech weapons.

  • For five years, heroic U.S. Servicemen and their allies have hunted Al-Qaeda and Taliban extremists who caused the deaths of 3,000 Americans in a single day.

  • The First Infantry Division, a.k.a. Big Red One, is the oldest and best division in the U.S. Army. These warriors fought more campaigns than any other U.S. division in World War Two.

  • It's the most desperate shootout of the Vietnam War. During the early morning hours of January 31, 1968, North Vietnamese communist troops launch a surprise attack on dozens of towns and villages across South Vietnam. They hope the bold offensive will spur a nation-wide uprising in the south and push U.S. forces from Vietnam. U.S. troops beat back the assault and hundreds of the communist fighters are killed. From remote jungle crossroads to the streets of Saigon, average Americans, under attack, display incredible courage and make sacrifices to save their buddies. The impact will be felt in the consciousness of the American public itself. We use unique visual graphics and interviews with survivors to complete the story.
