I wish I could’ve given y’all more advance notice. But this documentary is starting in a few minutes on East Coast PBS stations.
I’ll be watching at 9 p.m. Pacific Time.
UPDATE (05/07/08): Wow... this is a very good documentary. A wrenching emotional story, well told.
It was written, produced and directed by Samuel Pollard, who has spent years editing the feature films and documentaries of Spike Lee.
Check your local listings to be sure, but according to IMDb.com, “Marvin Gaye: What’s Going On” will be rebroadcast late tomorrow night... 12:30 a.m. Friday, actually.
As a side note, the film is narrated by Jesse L. Martin, who is supposed to star in a Hollywood movie about the last years of Gaye’s life.
