Back to the Future

June 28, 2020
Considered today to be one of the most successful movies of the 20th century it's almost impossible to imagine that Back To The Future was rejected more than 40 times by Hollywood studios before finally being made. The unlikely hit spawned two sequels, an animated series, a theme park ride and a musical. It also made household names out of its cast thrusting Christopher Lloyd, Crispin Glover and Lea Thompson into the spotlight while solidifying Michael J. Fox as one of Hollywood's most bankable stars. Back To The Future: Behind Closed Doors tells the inside story of the improbably series of events that got the movie off the ground as the crew grappled with budget overruns, an overly ambitious schedule and unusual casting change that rocked the production. At the time nobody could have predicted the impact the movie would have but it became the highest grossing movie of 1985 and would captivate audiences around the world for generations to come.

August 13, 2017
World famous entertainer Elvis Presley experienced a life of public triumphs and personal heartaches. His amazing life is chronicled in Elvis Presley: Behind Closed Doors, with intimate stories told by some of the friends and family who knew him best. Viewers are taken along on Presley’s journey from his dirt poor childhood, where the church was his sanctuary, to his first steps as a rock and roller breaking all the rules and earning both the media label “Elvis The Pelvis,” and legions of fans worldwide. His image as a bad boy will change as he enters the Army, returning a hero who goes on to become one of Hollywood’s most bankable movie stars-all orchestrated by the man who directed his career, Colonel Tom Parker. Yet Elvis can’t forsake his live concerts forever, and starts a new chapter in his life with some of the most groundbreaking performances of the 1970s. But his battle with personal demons will create a backlash from a media who ridicules him as “fat and forty,” to those in his inner circle who divulge secrets that wound the star to the core. It all signals deadly consequences for the mega-star, and his untimely death at age 42 sends millions of fans into mourning.

Princess Diana
2. Princess Diana
July 9, 2016
She was the fairytale princess and perhaps the most beloved woman not only in England...but in the world. Princess Diana was the People's Princess and the world was her stage. On July 29, 1981, Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles took their vows as three quarters of a billion people around the world who believed in fairytales watched. Diana was just 20 years old. The prince was 32. And within four years, the royal couple produced an heir and a spare to the British throne. But as early as the honeymoon, there were reports of trouble in paradise. Charles could not compete with Diana's glamour and innate ability to connect with the commoner. He soon resumed his affair with his lover, Camilla Parker Bowles, from his bachelor days and Diana took lovers of her own. The War of the Waleses had begun and it grew ugly. By 1996, the Queen ordered a divorce pronto! But, though she was no longer royalty, Diana remained "The Queen of People's Hearts"...until the unimaginable. On August 31, 1997, the world froze as news broke that Princess Diana was killed in a horrific car crash that took her life along with the life of her lover, Dodi Fayed, the heir to Harrods and son of a billionaire, as they tried to elude the paparazzi. Hollywood's #1 Entertainment Journalist Nancy O'Dell shares her memories of what it was like to be thrown on a plane within 24 hours of the accident to cover what she calls to this day, the "biggest story" of her career. She recounts the crowds that descended upon London, the outcry when the Monarchy didn't rush back from their summer holiday for five days, and the image of Diana's two young sons walking behind their mother's casket as crowds threw flowers at the funeral procession calling it, "one of the toughest jobs ever that I've had to do."
