Truth and Lies

ABC News Studios, in collaboration with NEON and Network Entertainment, has announced a new feature-length documentary called “BRATS.” The film explores the iconic films of the 1980s that had a profound impact on a generation and branded their young stars as the “Brat Pack.” These movies, such as “St. Elmo’s Fire” and “The Breakfast Club,” tapped into teenage angst and connected with young audiences in unprecedented ways.

Director Andrew McCarthy, who himself was part of the Brat Pack and rose to fame in films like “Pretty in Pink,” “St. Elmo’s Fire,” and “Less Than Zero,” reunites with his fellow Brat-Packers to delve into what it meant to be part of this cultural phenomenon. McCarthy meets with stars like Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez, Jon Cryer, Lea Thompson, Timothy Hutton, as well as key production members including directors and screenwriters. He also engages in a first-time conversation with David Blum, the writer who coined the term Brat Pack in a 1985 New York Magazine cover story.

In this intimate documentary filled with Hollywood fascination and personal revelations, “BRATS” reveals how the Brat Pack label impacted each member personally and professionally. McCarthy reflects on how being associated with this group affected his own life and career.

Currently in post-production, “BRATS” is scheduled to stream on Hulu later this year. The documentary is produced by Neon and Network Entertainment for ABC News Studios. Andrew McCarthy serves as both writer and director while Derik Murray and Adrian Buitenhuis produce it. Brian Liebman and Andrew McCarthy are executive producers along with Neon’s Dan O’Meara and Tom Quinn, as well as Network Entertainment’s Brian Gersh, Paul Gertz, and Kent Wingerak. ABC News Studios’ Victoria Thompson is executive producer while David Sloan is the senior executive producer.
