THIRTEEN's American Masters launches its 28th season with the series' 200th episode: the exclusive director's cut of Shane Salerno's documentary, Salinger, premiering nationally Tuesday, January 21, 9-11:30 p.m. on PBS (check local listings) with 15 minutes of new material not seen in theaters.

Below, watch exclusive outtakes from the film including superfan Edward Norton's analysis of The Catcher in the Rye, David Shields (Salinger co-author), Edward Norton, Michael Silverblatt (Bookworm radio host) and Mark Howard (teacher) discuss religion and spirituality in J.D. Salinger's writing and Pulitzer Prize-winner ElizaBeth Frank, professor of Modern Languages and Literature at Bard College, discusses The Catcher in the Rye as a revolt against the 1950s.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs, personal stories and moments from J.D. Salinger's (Jan. 1, 1919 - Jan. 27, 2010) life and harrowing service in World War II, Salerno's new director's cut expands his intimate portrait of the enigmatic author of The Catcher in the Rye. American Masters was the first to close a deal with Salerno for Salinger, securing the exclusive domestic television rights to the documentary in January 2013.

An official selection of the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival, the film made front page news all over the world with its revelations. Associated Press called the research yielded during Salerno's 10-year investigation "unprecedented" and "thoroughly documented."

American Masters: Salinger delves into his many relationships with young women, featuring Jean Miller and Joyce Maynard; his literary success and total retreat from the limelight to Cornish, N.H.; his self-imposed isolation from his family and the world to write; his religious fanaticism; his rare and dramatic interactions with the press; and, above all, the literary secrets he left behind after his death. The documentary features interviews with some 150 subjects including Salinger's friends, colleagues and members of his inner circle who speak on the record for the first time, as well as previously unseen film footage, photographs and other materials. Participants including E.L. Doctorow, Tom Wolfe, Gore Vidal, Pulitzer Prize-winners A. Scott Berg and ElizaBeth Frank, actors Martin Sheen, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Edward Norton, John Cusack, Danny DeVito, playwright John Guare and Oscar-winning screenwriter Robert Towne all share Salinger's influence on their lives, their work and the broader culture.
