Plot Synopsis

Created by Derik Murray, I AM is a series of feature documentary films that showcase and celebrate American and global icons. The production company works hand in hand with the estates and families of the subjects of its films, who provide rare or never-before-seen filmed and photographic content from the family archives including home movies, family photos, and select memorabilia, as well as new on-camera interviews and introductions. I AM launched in 2012 with the release of "I Am Bruce Lee." A slate of feature documentaries was created under the I AM banner, including "I Am Steve McQueen" in June 2014, followed by films on Evel Knievel, Dale Earnhardt, Chris Farley, John F. Kennedy Jr., Heath Ledger, Sam Kinison, Martin Luther King Jr., Paul Walker, Richard Pryor, Patrick Swayze, and Jackie O.
After taking nearly a four-year break, the I AM franchise returned with "I Am Burt Reynolds" on Saturday, December 30, 2023 from 8-10pm ET/PT on The CW. With a career in Hollywood dating back to the studio system, GUNSMOKE, and hanging with the Rat Pack, Burt Reynolds epitomized Old Hollywood while never ceasing to be a Florida "good ole boy." From his beginnings in the old studio system and guest TV appearances, through to his breakout roles in DELIVERANCE and THE LONGEST YARD, on to BOOGIE NIGHTS and his smash hit, SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT, Burt Reynolds blended Southern charm with a progressive attitude towards women, race and sexuality and was a hero to both conservative and liberal America alike.
