Behind Closed Doors: Back to the Future (S5EP8 REELZ Sun 28 Jun 2020)

Back to the Future: Considered today to be one of the most successful movies of the 20th century it's almost impossible to imagine that Back To The Future was rejected more than 40 times by Hollywood studios before finally being made. The unlikely hit spawned two sequels, an animated series, a theme park ride and a musical. It also made household names out of its cast thrusting Christopher Lloyd, Crispin Glover and Lea Thompson into the spotlight while solidifying Michael J. Fox as one of Hollywood's most bankable stars. Back To The Future: Behind Closed Doors tells the inside story of the improbably series of events that got the movie off the ground as the crew grappled with budget overruns, an overly ambitious schedule and unusual casting change that rocked the production. At the time nobody could have predicted the impact the movie would have but it became the highest grossing movie of 1985 and would captivate audiences around the world for generations to come.
