The Full-Length Jerry Garcia Doc Is Go

Jerry Garcia, the San Francisco-born guitarist of the Grateful Dead, will be the subject of a new feature-length documentary film released this spring, according to a report today in Deadline Hollywood.

Spearheading the project are music documentary producer Malcom Leo (This Is Elvis, The Beach Boys: An American Band), and John Hartmann, brother of the late comedian Phil Hartmann, who managed Cosby, Still, and Nash, the Eagles, and Peter, Paul, and Mary, among other bands. Leo and Hartmann already produced a film clip about Garcia shown at AT&T Park last summer for the SF Giants' Jerry Garcia Day; footage from that event will be included in the new film.
