Next month, Boston Star Trek fans will be able to see Remembering Leonard Nimoy, a new documentary on the actor produced and directed by his daughter Julie Nimoy and son-in-law, David Knight.
“We’re very pleased to be broadcasting Remembering Leonard Nimoy beginning in May 2017,” said Ron Bachman, Senior Director of Programming at WGBH.
“David and I are so thrilled to be able to air our documentary on public television,” said Julie Nimoy. “Dad would be so happy knowing that his story will premiere in his beloved hometown of Boston, where he never forgot his roots.”
“Remembering Leonard Nimoy is an intimate journey into Leonard Nimoy’s personal life. It features stories from his childhood growing up in Boston, his early career in Hollywood, his big break-out role on the Star Trek series, highlights from his remarkable career, [and] the remaining years of his life battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
“Remembering Leonard Nimoy features interviews with Leonard’s closest family members including his children, Julie and Adam, his wife, Susan, step-son, Aaron and his six grandchildren [all] sharing poignant stories and special memories.
