Hamilton's America Sneak Peek: An Inside Look at the Making of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway Hit

Updated

For Hamilton fans who can’t get enough of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, PBS has got you covered!

On Friday, Hamilton audiences will get to take an inside look at the making of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s masterpiece in the documentary film, Hamilton’s America.

In a PEOPLE exclusive sneak peek, viewers will follow the creator and star of the Broadway hit as the film — which has been three years in the making — delves even deeper into the creation of the show, revealing Miranda’s process of absorbing and then adapting Alexander Hamilton’s epic story into groundbreaking musical theater.

The clip also documents the cast delivering a performance of “The Room Where It Happens” for President Barack Obama at the White House, and follows Miranda and costar Leslie Odom Jr. visit the Museum of American Finance to get a deeper understanding of the historical figures they depicted on stage.

Directed by Alex Horowitz and produced by RadicalMedia, the film — it includes interviews with President George W. Bush, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Secretary Hank Paulson, Secretary Timothy Geithner, Questlove, Black Thought, Jimmy Fallon and more — will kick off the season premiere of the PBS Arts Fall Festival.

Hamilton’s America is a RadicalMedia production debuting on PBS’ Great Performances on Oct. 21 at 9 p.m ET.
