Weekly Documentary Series: JEREMIAH TOWER: THE LAST MAGNIFICENT

Director: Lydia Tenaglia

Interviews with Anthony Bourdain, Mario Batali, Martha Stewart and Ruth Reichl

Both a biopic of a complicated man and an exploration of the gathering forces that converged to shape a new American cuisine and create the cult of “celebrity chef ”... A consummate hedonist, Jeremiah Tower’s career spans the riotous sexual revolution of the 70’s to the high rolling “greed-is-good” spirit of the ‘80s. Key interviews with celebrities & celebrity chefs cement Tower’s influence on today’s food culture and reveal how he transformed the restaurant industry and in the process changed the way we eat.
