Photo Flash: All-New Images from PBS Documentary HAMILTON'S AMERICA, Premiering 10/21

HAMILTON'S AMERICA, the documentary film that brings history to vivid life through the lens ofLin-Manuel Miranda's pop culture Broadway phenomenon Hamilton - winner of 11 TONY AWARDS and the Pulitzer Prize - explodes onto THIRTEEN's Great Performances, Friday, October 21 at 9 p.m. on PBS as the season premiere of the PBS Arts Fall Festival.

The story of Alexander Hamilton is most remembered for its dramatic conclusion, which saw Hamilton killed in a duel by Vice President Aaron Burr. Today, Hamilton's fan club is vocal and growing, thanks, in no small measure, to Tony, Grammy, and Emmy-winning composer and actor, Lin-Manuel Miranda's revolutionary musical.

Produced by Academy Award® and Emmy Award®-winning producers RadicalMedia and directed by Alex Horwitz, Hamilton's America delves deep into the creation of the show, revealing Miranda's process of absorbing and then adapting Hamilton's epic story into groundbreaking musical theater. Further fleshing out the story is newly shot footage of the New York production with its original cast, trips to historic locations, and a surprising range of interviews includingPresident Barack Obama, President George W. Bush. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Secretary Hank Paulson, Secretary Timothy Geithner, Questlove, Black Thought, Jimmy Fallon, John Weidman, Nas and Stephen Sondheim.
