About the documentary:
Premiering Saturday (Aug. 6) at 10/9c on CMT, The Bandit gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Smokey and the Bandit, along with the unbreakable bond between its star Burt Reynolds and director Hal Needham.
Featuring interviews with Reynolds, and the late Needham, The Bandit traces the personal journeys of the pair, and includes never-before-seen archive material, along with commentary from other key players. Directed by Jesse Moss, the documentary made its world premiere at the SXSW Film Conference and Festival in March, and has been screened at numerous film festivals since that time.
