CNN-TV has acquired exclusive domestic broadcast rights for the feature documentary "GLEN CAMPBELL: I'll Be Me" from PCH FILMS. The film is slated to make its CNN-TV debut in JUNE with an encore presentation in NOVEMBER.
"We look forward to having the CAMPBELLS' brave story -- unfortunately familiar to too many AMERICAN families -- on CNN," said documentary producer TREVOR ALBERT. "This partnership will guarantee that millions of people will have the opportunity to see our movie and understand just how important it is to both raise awareness -- and find an end -- to ALZHEIMER'S disease."
"GLEN CAMPBELL: I'll Be Me" documents CAMPBELL's diagnosis of ALZHEIMER'S disease and his corresponding farewell tour in 2011 and 2012. The film chronicles his struggle on and off stage, the progression of his illness, and the toll the disease has taken on his family and friends.
The film also features the GRAMMY AWARD-winning and ACADEMY AWARD-nominated song "I'm Not Gonna Miss You," which was the final song CAMPBELL was able to record before his health declined (NET NEWS 9/8/14). "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" was performed by TIM MCGRAW on last night's (2/22) ACADEMY AWARDS telecast, and the completed soundtrack to "GLEN CAMPBELL: I'll Be Me" has been made available by BIG MACHINE RECORDS.
