CMT to Air ‘The Bandit’ Documentary Film

CMT in August will air the documentary film The Bandit, which chronicles the development of the hit 1970’s film Smokey & The Bandit.

The film, which debuted earlier this year at SXSW, profiles actor Burt Reynolds, his best friend, roommate and stunt-double Hal Needham, and their work together in developing the car-chase comedy Smokey & The Bandit, which starred Reynolds, Sally Field and Jackie Gleason.

The Bandit is executively produced and directed by Jesse Moss, with Jayson Dinsmore, Lewis Bogach and John Miller-Monzon also serving as executive producers for CMT.
