A PBS documentary that is part of the ‘American Masters‘ series will feature Billy Joel, as well as a number of other public figure Baby Boomers.
The Boomer List, which airs September 23rd, features interviews with 19 celebrities born during a different year of the Baby Boom era, from 1946 to 1964.
“When I learned about this year’s boomer milestone, I came up with the idea for The Boomer List,” said director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders in a statement. “The film captures the boomer generation’s dynamic spirit through 19 distinct ‘American Masters’ who had a profound effect on our world.”
In addition to Billy Joel, born in 1949 in The Bronx, New York, the documentary also features actor Samuel L. Jackson, Apple Computer co-founder Steve Wozniak, and New Age guru Deepak Chopra, among others.
A DVD version will be released October 1st as well as a companion coffee table book featuring photographs of the documentary’s subjects.
