The two-part doc is being described as “a kaleidoscopic portrait told in two parts” and “traces the life of the imaginative artist behind one of pop culture’s most celebrated and unlikely icons: Pee-wee Herman.”
In his own statement, Reubens said, “I’ve been working with HBO since they were called Home Box Office! I’m honoured and excited to continue my long history there. I love HBO, but I’m not going to marry them.”
