RATHER premieres on NETFLIX May 1!

RATHER, a documentary I wrote about the legendary newsman Dan Rather premieres on Netflix on May 1. Directed by Frank Marshall. 

Netflix has set “Rather,” the documentary about veteran journalist Dan Rather‘s landmark career in news for an May 1 premiere on the streamer. The feature utilizes the story of Rather’s life on television to also explore the evolution of broadcast journalism, the troubles a free press now faces, along with the slide of American society from hard-fought advances in social justice and democratic freedoms.

Frank Marshall directed “Rather,” which comes from Wavelength and Original Productions, in association with Anchor Entertainment and The Kennedy/Marshall Company. The doc first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last June.

RATHER Premiere: Tribeca June 9, 2023


It was a true honor to write this documentary about legendary newsman Dan Rather, directed by Frank Marshall.

It was also a pleasure to reunite with Wavelength Productions—in particular with the brilliant, talented and beyond dedicated editor Joe Fenstermaker—as well as editor Curtis McConnell (with whom I worked on Fate of a Sport).

The film premieres at Tribeca Film Festival June 9th!
