HBO SHINES A SPOTLIGHT ON LEGENDARY HOLLYWOOD PRODUCER JERRY WEINTRAUB WHEN FEATURE-LENGTH DOCUMENTARY "HIS WAY" DEBUTS APRIL 4 ON HBO

Oscar(R) Nominee Douglas McGrath Writes And Directs; Produced By Graydon Carter Along With Alan Polsky And Gabe Polsky; Oscar(R) Winner Steven Soderbergh Executive Produces Along With Audrey Rosenberg

Legendary film producer and personal manager Jerry Weintraub steps out from behind the scenes as he takes his turn in the spotlight with the feature-length documentary HIS WAY. Directed by Oscar(R) nominee Douglas McGrath, produced by Emmy(R)- and Peabody-winning documentary producer Graydon Carter, Alan Polsky and Gabe Polsky, and executive produced by Oscar(R) winner Steven Soderbergh and Audrey Rosenberg, HIS WAY chronicles the five-decade career of the trailblazing Hollywood entrepreneur, utilizing personal video, archival footage and one-on-one interviews with Weintraub, his friends, family and co-workers, and some of today's brightest stars.

Debuting MONDAY, APRIL 4 (9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO, the documentary features interviews with Weintraub's friends in political and Hollywood circles, including former president George H.W. Bush, Barbara Bush, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, Bruce Willis, Ellen Barkin, James Caan, Elliott Gould, Andy Garcia and Ralph Macchio, among others.

Other HBO playdates: April 4 (5:00 a.m.), 9 (1:00 p.m.), 15 (7:30 p.m.), 17 (11:00 a.m.), 21 (11:00 a.m.) and 25 (midnight)

HBO2 playdate: April 13 (10:00 a.m., 8:00 p.m.)

"Jerry's success as a producer is legendary and his prolific career is one that we have admired for years," says Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. "He is also one heck of a storyteller, and it was this ability to narrate his life in the most compelling and entertaining way that drew us to HIS WAY. Seeing the caliber of talent that has come forth to participate in the documentary is a testament to his professional prowess and the obvious respect he has earned over the years. We are delighted that Jerry chose HBO to bring his story to the screen."

Weintraub's unbridled passion for the world of entertainment, impressive business savvy and gift of social diplomacy led to his success as a promoter, manager and respected producer of films, television and concerts. His unmatched ability to recognize and promote talent found him at the top of his game in his 20s, arranging tours for both Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. He conceived and produced sold-out concert tours for John Denver, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan and others; produced top-rated television specials; produced blockbuster and critically acclaimed films such as the "Ocean's Eleven" series, the "Karate Kid" series, "Diner" and "Nashville"; and recently penned his best-selling autobiography, "When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead."

Charming, clever, confident, brutally honest, unabashed, unorthodox and sometimes outrageous, Weintraub presents a portrait of a man who was taught early in life to work hard and dream big, to pursue his visions and to never take no for an answer.

A self-made Brooklyn-born impresario, Weintraub was 26 when he enjoyed his first great success with Elvis Presley. He went on to work with such legendary musicians as Frank Sinatra, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond and John Denver.

HIS WAY is a Polsky Films production in association with Consolidated Documentaries; written and directed by Douglas McGrath; produced by Alan Polsky, Gabe Polsky, Graydon Carter; executive produced by Audrey Rosenberg and Steven Soderbergh.
