Live from New York

Perhaps you’ve read Tom Shales and James A. Miller’s oral history-of-Saturday Night Live 2002 book Live from New York and watched SNL‘s three-and-a-half hour 40th anniversary special on NBC in February. Now it’s time for a new peek into the iconic and always scrutinized sketch show Saturday Night Live in a different medium. The trailer for the big-screen documentary also titled Live from New York! has just been released, and it promises to tell the story behind the late-night experiment that has churned out more stars than a constellation with a lot of stars. Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival next week and opening in select theaters across the country on June 12, the 82-minute film boasts “stolen moments” and interviews with SNL alums including Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Chris Rock. “It’s America right now, whether you like it or not,” sums up Poehler in the trailer, which can be seen right here.
