American Made: Jay-Z Concert Documentary To Air On TV

Jay-Z’s two-day music festival Made In America has been captured on film and the documentary will now air on Showtime.

On Oct. 11, the cable network will premiere the Philadelphia-based festival that included performances by Kanye West, Jill Scott, Drake, Pearl Jam, Janelle Monae, Run-DMC, D’Angelo, Wale, Rick Ross and other music stars.

The hip-hop superstar partnered with Imagine Entertainment to produce the documentary, which was directed by Ron Howard.


“As soon as we saw this film we knew it was a perfect fit for Showtime,” Showtime’s entertainment president David Nevins said in a statement. “Ron Howard and Jay Z have crafted an inspirational portrayal of American resilience, drive and creativity, interwoven with an incredible showcase of musical talent. We are proud to bring Made in America to Showtime where it joins our impressive roster of provocative and compelling documentaries helmed by award-winning filmmakers.”

“Made In America” will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival later this week.
