Rita Moreno will be the focus of a just-ordered PBS documentary, scheduled to premiere in 2020.

“Rita Moreno: The Girl Who Decided to Go For It” is a parternship between THIRTEEN’s AMERICAN MASTERS series and Norman Lear’s Act III Productions in association with Maramara and executive producer Lin-Manuel Miranda.

“Rita Moreno has won every major award – the Peabody, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony – for good reason,” said Michael Kantor, AMERICAN MASTERS series executive producer in a statement. “She is not just an American Master, she is an American treasure.”

“How I wish my Puerto Rican mother were alive to see this: her child’s story being celebrated by the likes of AMERICAN MASTERS,” said Moreno. “It is not something she or I could ever have imagined. I’m astonished. I’m humbled.”

“When I learned from my producing partner, Brent Miller, that a film had not yet been made on Rita Moreno, I couldn’t believe it and suggested we make it together,” said executive producer Norman Lear. “There’s no woman more deserving of the AMERICAN MASTERS stamp. Her talent, her activism, her life – all worthy of an audience. And her story, an inspiration to so many, is one that should live on forever.”
