I can't wait to see this myself! It's certainly going to be something no one will want to miss. By the way, the documentary was originally scheduled to premiere in 2019, but it's reportedly been pushed back to 2020. There's certainly a lot of ground to cover, so if they need a little extra time to perfect the series one can't be mad at that. I'll keep you posted on a date for the debut, in the meantime, it looks like the film will simulcast on both networks when it comes out.
