Largely responsible for bold American television in the 1970s, Norman Lear's name is synonymous with the sitcom.

From his childhood and early career with his groundbreaking TV success and social activism, Lear proved social change was possible through an unlikely prism laughter and created some of the greatest moments in television history.

Arguably the most influential creator, writer, and producer in the history of television, Norman Lear brought primetime into step with the times. Using comedy and indelible characters, his legendary 1970s shows such as All In the Family, Maude, Good Times, and The Jeffersons, boldly cracked open dialogue and shifted the national consciousness, injecting enlightened humanism into sociopolitical debates on race, class, creed, and feminism.

Interviews by George Clooney, John Amos, Mel Brooks, Amy Poehler and others, along with vintage behind the scenes footage of his sitcoms add greatly to the telling of his life story.
