NEW YORK, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- PBS says it plans to air director Robert Weide's two-part documentary about notoriously private U.S. filmmaker Woody Allen this month.

"Woody Allen: A Documentary" is set for broadcast Nov. 20-21 as part of PBS' 25th anniversary season of "American Masters."

Weide followed the actor, writer and director for more than a year-and-a-half to create the film biography.

"Woody Allen was always the big 'get' for me," Weide said in a statement Monday. "The prolific nature of Woody's output has provided me with an embarrassment of riches. In fact, Woody will have made three features just in the time it's taken me to make this one documentary."

"This is the Woody doc everybody has been waiting for, and I am delighted that this creative giant is finally assuming his rightful place in the 'American Masters' library," said Susan Lacy, series creator and executive producer of "American Masters."

The series is a production of THIRTEEN for WNET, the parent company of THIRTEEN and WLIW21, New York's public television stations, and operator of NJTV.
