Saturday Night Live Documentary
NBC has ordered up another documentary on the history of “Saturday Night Live,” this time focusing on the show's up-and-down ride through the 1990s.
“Saturday Night Live in the '90s: Pop Culture Nation” is the third in a series of films about the late-night institution by director-producer Kenneth Bowser. The previous two, focusing on the show's early years and the tribulations of the 1980s, aired in 2005.
As with the past two docs, “Pop Culture Nation” will be filled with interviews from cast members and writers, including Chris Rock, Mike Myers, Tina Fey and Will Ferrell. It will also feature two little-used players who have since gone on to much wider fame: Sarah Silverman and David Koechner.
“Saturday Night Live in the '90s” is scheduled to air May 6 on NBC.
