Rashida Jones said in a statement, “It’s rare that somebody who has lived as much life as my dad is still interested in growing and knowing the next generation… He is such a man of action and accomplishments, but we were so lucky to spend real time with him, to let him reflect on life and the larger picture. I feel honored to be able to share that with audiences all over the world.”
