Unsung Hollywood will share rare stories from film, television, comedy and sports stars through clips, archival and contemporary performances, and exclusively shot, behind-the-scenes footage. As with Unsung, Unsung Hollywood also features in-depth personal interviews with the talent as well as their family members, friends, industry associates, fellow entertainers and various cultural commentators.
