About Hamilton's America

If you watch WITF-TV, you know we're your home for arts and culture programming. Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tony and Grammy Award-winning creator and star of Hamilton, agrees, "I'm such a huge fan of PBS. For my entire life it's been our window into a world of the arts that isn't available anywhere else on TV." So he agreed to give PBS unprecedented access to create Hamilton's America, a documentary about the making of the musical. Three years in the making, GREAT PERFORMANCES follows the creation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's pop culture Broadway phenomenon Hamilton and the history behind it. Interviews with Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, Nas, Questlove, Stephen Sondheim and more. Watch the full documentary premiere on WITF-TV Friday, October 21 at 9pm.
