(AP) Cheney, Pryor get Showtime ‘Closeup’ profiles
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.
Showtime says it’s launching a new documentary showcase, with Dick Cheney and the late Richard Pryor among the first to be profiled.

The cable channel told the Television Critics Association on Monday that the series titled “Closeup” will offer provocative studies of culturally significant people.

Among the first films will be “The World According to Dick Cheney,” which Showtime described as a measured, complex look at President George W. Bush’s vice president.

Other documentaries include “Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic” and “Suge Knight: American Dream-American Knightmare.”

Filmmaker Brett Ratner (“Rush Hour”) will profile music mogul Tommy Mottola, who has worked with stars including Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and Mariah Carey. Mottola and Carey divorced after five years of marriage.

Air dates for the “Closeup” documentaries were not immediately announced.
