Morgan Neville (20 FEET FROM STARDOM) returns with WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?, a beautifully crafted biography of children’s television host Mr. Rogers and his hard-fought campaign to educate generations of kids and adults in the ways of kindness. Fred Rogers spent 50 years on children’s television, beseeching us to love and to allow ourselves to be loved. With television as his pulpit, he helped transform the very concept of childhood. WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? asks each of us to question ourselves about the quality of our relationships with friends, family, and, yes, our neighbors.

Co-Presented by NJTV and WNET Thirteen.

Q&A with producer Nicholas Ma to follow.
