Evocateur: The Morton Downey, Jr. Movie
A film by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, Jeremy Newberger
Starring Morton Downey, Jr.
Before entire networks were built on populist personalities; before reality morphed into a TV genre; the masses fixated on a single, sociopathic star: controversial talk-show host Morton Downey, Jr.
Filmmakers scheduled to appear!
In the late ‘80s, Downey tore apart the traditional talk format by turning debate of current issues into a gladiator pit. His blow-smoke-in-your-face style drew a rabid cult following, but also the title “Father of Trash Television.” Évocateur: The Morton Downey, Jr. Movie dissects the mind and motivation of television’s most notorious agitator.
Prepare for a rollercoaster ride through Downey’s euphoric ascent to fame and nauseating plummet to infamy.
