Added producer Stanley Buchthal, "My journey began in 1980 when I first met Lee Strasberg, and continued to 2009when I co-edited Marilyn Monroe's diaries and poems. The tremendous odyssey continued when Liz Garbus and I joined to offer the world a unique new insight into a remarkable 20th-century icon, Marilyn Monroe. I am personally delighted to be in business again with the HBO family."
