Remembering Leonard Nimoy

Remembering Leonard Nimoy

Sunday, Jan. 7, at 11 p.m.
Repeats Monday, Jan. 8, at 4 a.m.

Take an intimate journey into the personal life of Leonard Nimoy, a prolific actor and director who is best known for playing Spock in the “Star Trek” franchise.

The hourlong documentary features stories from his childhood growing up in Boston in the 1930s and 1940s, an overview of his early career in Hollywood and a snapshot of his big break-out role on the popular sci-fi series.

It also offers a glimpse into the last years of Nimoy’s life, revealing how he helped raise awareness about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the lung disease that took his life, and its toll on his family.
The film includes highlights from his remarkable career, never-before-seen home videos and photos, and poignant interviews with Nimoy’s closest family members, including his children Julie and Adam, his wife Susan, step-son Aaron and his six grandchildren.

In addition, REMEMBERING LEONARD NIMOY features interviews with medical experts, including Nimoy’s physician and private nurse who describe what COPD is, as well as its root symptoms and causes.
