Trace the remarkable 80-year long career of pop culture icon Betty White. The legend and friend to many, including a 900-pound grizzly bear.

With exclusive access to Betty and her team over ten years, this film captures a personal side to her life. Not just working, but backstage, entertaining at home and interacting with her closest friends.

The film is packed with clips from her long and varied career, and comments from her friends and co-stars, including Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Carl Reiner, Carol Burnett, Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Bertinelli, Pamela Adlon, Valerie Harper, Gavin MacLeod and Georgia Engel.

The film looks back at her full and legendary career, as a pioneer, entertainer, and Hollywood’s life-long sweetheart. Beloved for her roles in The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Golden Girls, to hosting the highest-rated SNL episode ever, Betty is an icon across generations.

Betty was the first woman to ever appear on television, with her performance on an experimental broadcast in 1939. Not only that, but she was also the first woman to produce a national television show, the first producer to hire a female director, the first woman to star in a sitcom, and the first woman to receive an Emmy nomination.

This is a definitive portrait of one of the most beloved women in America and in TV history, truly the “First Lady of Television”.
