This first premiered at the SXSW & Cannes Film Festivals this year. You know them, you love them, now learn the real story about them! The "epic 6-part documentary" from CNN Films & HBO Max is about Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward's iconic careers and decades-long partnership. Through long lost transcrips of interviews with Paul, Joanne and those close to them, brought to life by the voices of contemporary actors, we're given an intimate front row seat to the lives and careers of the couple that would go on to forge an unmatched cultural legacy. The doc series is executive produced by Scorsese, directed by none other than Ethan Hawke, also a movie star, with George Clooney as the voice of Paul and Laura Linney as the voice of Joanne.
