Two Scorsese Docs Headed to the Small Screen

Today it was announced that two documentaries by Martin Scorsese will be coming to television this fall. The first is “Public Spaking,” directed by Scorsese and produced by Graydon Carter and Margaret Bodde. The doc profiles the life of Fran Lebowitz, the writer of two collections of humor essays who had stints at “Interview” and “Mademoiselle.” “Public Speaking” will broadcast on HBO this November. The second, “A Letter to Elia,” explores the life and work of famed film director Eliz Kazan. The film premiered at Venice, played at Telluride and will play at the New York Film Festival. “Letter” is produced by Scorsese and Emma Tillinger Koskoff and will air on PBS as part of the “American Masters” series on October 4, 2010. On November 9, Twentieth Century Fox is releasing a collection of Kazan’s work that will include the Scorsese doc.
