From the gritty streets and smoky music halls of London to movie screens across the world, Limelight goes behind the camera to show how a comic genius found soaring success and later fell from grace. Limelight provides a captivating close-up on the man who changed motion pictures forever.

Inspired by true events...

It's been a tough year for the ten strangers competing for a new hardbody truck, but now their fate is in their hands. Over the next 144 hours they will laugh, cry and push their bodies and minds to the limits as they fight to keep at least one hand on a brand new truck. The contestant with the most nerve — and tenacity — will drive away with the American Dream.

Based on the documentary film of the same name, Hands on a Hardbody features a brilliant score from Amanda Green and Trey Anastasio, along with a masterful story by Pulitzer Prize winner Doug Wright.
