MILES AHEAD, a new film about Miles Davis, stars Don Cheadle and Ewan McGregor.

Join us this Sunday, April 24th at 9 pm for a special program that examines the making of the motion picture, Miles Ahead.

This hour-long show delves into how the director and star of Miles Ahead, Don Cheadle, uses unlikely circumstances, like car chases and gunfights, to create a portrait of the legendary musical genius, Miles Davis. 

Hosted by Joshua Jackson, this program tells how Miles Ahead came together from the perspective of Cheadle himself, along with musician Robert Glasper, Miles’ son Erin Davis, and nephew Vince Wilburn Jr.   There will also be plenty of music from the motion picture soundtrack. Don't miss it!
