The documentary Remembering Leonard Nimoy will start airing Sunday, November 5 on PBS stations across the country, ideally timed to COPD Awareness Month. COPD — or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease — is the illness that claimed the life of the legendary Star Trek star on February 27, 2015. Some of the PBS stations/cities confirmed to air it are Los Angeles, New York, Boston, San Francisco and Boston; the documentary premiered in May on WGBH Boston, drawing enough viewers to earn a national slot.
Produced and directed by Nimoy's daughter, Julie, and son-in-law, David Knight, Remembering Leonard Nimoy features interviews with Nimoy's family members, including his children, Julie and Adam, his wife Susan, stepson Aaron and his six grandchildren, in which they share poignant stories and special memories. Also included are never-seen-before home videos and photographs.
