It's the logical choice. Remembering Leonard Nimoy, the documentary about Nimoy produced and directed by his daughter Julie and son-in-law David Knight, will premiere next month on WGBH Boston.
“David and I are so thrilled to be able to air our documentary on public television," Julie Nimoy said in a statement. "Dad would be so happy knowing that his story will premiere in his beloved hometown of Boston, where he never forgot his roots."
As previously reported here at StarTrek.com, Remembering Leonard Nimoy is an intimate journey into the Star Trek legend's personal life. The stories shared in the documentary span from from his childhood growing up in Boston to his early career in Hollywood to his breakout role as Spock on Star Trek, and it also explores, in detail, the final years of his life, when he bravely battled Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
Remembering Leonard Nimoy features interviews with Nimoy's family members, including his children, Julie and Adam, his wife Susan, stepson Aaron and his six grandchildren, in which they share poignant stories and special memories. Also included are never-seen-before home videos and photographs.
Beyond the airing on WGBH, Creation Entertainment has confirmed that the documentary will screen during Star Trek Las Vegas, the official Star Trek convention. STLV will be held in August at the Rio Suites Hotel in Las Vegas.
