Listen up, comedy nerds. There will be a two part Woody Allen documentary on PBS starting this Sunday, Nov. 20, airing from 9 to 11 pm ET. The second part goes down Monday, Nov. 21 and airs from 9 – 10:30 pm ET. Part of the network’s American Masters series, the documentary — from filmmaker Robert Weide, known for his work on Curb Your Enthusiasm — includes interviews with the likes of Chris Rock, Larry David, Scarlett Johanssen, Diane Keaton and many more. PBS says the following:

Beginning with Allen’s childhood and his first professional gigs as a teen — furnishing jokes for comics and publicists — American Masters – Woody Allen: A Documentary chronicles the trajectory and longevity of Allen’s career: from his work in the 1950s-60s as a TV scribe for Sid Caesar, standup comedian and frequent TV talk show guest, to a writer-director averaging one film-per-year for more than 40 years. Weide covers Allen’s earliest film work in Take the Money and Run, Bananas, Sleeper, and Love and Death; frequent Oscar favorites such as Annie Hall, Manhattan, Zelig, Broadway Danny Rose, Purple Rose of Cairo, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Husbands & Wives, Bullets Over Broadway, and Mighty Aphrodite; and his recent globetrotting phase with Match Point, Vicky Christina Barcelona, and this year’s box office smash Midnight in Paris.

Check out a preview here, and be sure to tune in on Sunday!
