Oscilloscope Laboratories announced today that it has acquired North American rights to Biagio Messina's warm comic documentary "Dying To Do Letterman."
The film follows standup comedian Steve Mazan in his long-standing quest to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman, which becomes markedly more urgent after Mazan is diagnosed with potentially terminal cancer. In addition to chronicling Mazan's personal story, "Dying To DO Letterman" pulls back the curtain on the world of modern stand-up, featuring interviews with Kevin Nealon, Ray Romano and Jim Gaffigan, among others.
Oscilloscope will make "Dying to do Letterman" available on Cable VOD and over online platforms beginning December 4th.
