PBS will air a documentary on EGOT winner Rita Moreno, called “Rita Moreno: The Girl Who Decided to Go for It.” The documentary will follow Moreno’s decades-long career, featuring interviews, archival footage, and reenactments of Moreno’s childhood and animation.
Norman Lear and Lin-Manuel Miranda have partnered to produce the project, slated to air in 2020. Moreno is currently filming the Steven Spielberg remake of “West Side Story.” She won a best supporting actress Oscar for the film in 1962.
Meanwhile Moreno’s sitcom “One Day at a Time,” produced by Lear, was just saved from cancellation by Pop TV after three seasons on Netflix.
