PBS SoCal launched a look earlier this year into the life of Walt Disney and now this week they dive into the life of Disney Legend Richard M. Sherman.
RICHARD M. SHERMAN: SONGS OF A LIFETIME takes a look at the storied career of one of America’s most legendary tunesmiths highlighting nearly 60 years of popular songs, many written in collaboration with his late brother, Robert B. Sherman.
Produced by acclaimed film producer/director and writer Don Hahn, the one-hour HD broadcast features Richard M. Sherman at the piano as he performs and shares the stories behind many of the timeless tunes of the Sherman brothers songbook (spanning rock n’roll, television, Hollywood, Broadway and Disney), plus many of his own compositions.
During the program, Sherman will be joined by Broadway star Ashley Brown, acclaimed stage performer Juliana Hansen and The Barbershop Quartet (Wesley Alfvin, Jim Campbell, Jon Schoenherz and Drew Tablak).
RICHARD M. SHERMAN: SONGS OF A LIFETIME debuts on PBS SoCal at December 17, 7pm. Check local listings for exact showtimes.
