EXCLUSIVE: Secret ‘Salinger’ documentary to be 200th episode of PBS series American Masters

EXCLUSIVE: Not all of last week’s indie film deal-making action took place at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City. Three years to the day that The Catcher In The Rye author J.D. Salinger died and Deadline revealed a feature documentary on the reclusive author had been completed, the U.S. television rights to the Shane Salerno-directed Salinger have been licensed to Thirteen/WNET to be the 200th episode of the PBS series American Masters.
