Cameron Crowe and the cast of “Almost Famous” answer big 20th anniversary questions like, “Why are we still talking about this film now?” What is the legacy of “Almost Famous?” "How did the film change your career? Your life?"
Come behind the camera and the scenes as the entire cast shares stories from their favorite and most difficult days during the long five month shoot of “Almost Famous.”
Nancy Wilson and Peter Frampton tutor Billy Crudup, Jason Lee, and others on being rock stars, including how to figure out how to play the guitar in just six weeks — while the others start rehearsals and get to know one another.
Cameron Crowe's script for “Almost Famous” was semi-autobiographical; if you think that made it easier to write, consider its 10 year incubation. In Episode 2, we go back to Cameron’s real life upbringing, and follow him as he never gives up on bringing his most personal story to the screen.
“Almost Famous” was almost a very different movie. Can you imagine the film with Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, and Natalie Portman? Here’s the full story of the casting saga that took place before filming ever started.
Origins is back! James Andrew Miller brings you behind the scenes of the Cameron Crowe classic that put us on the bus with Stillwater and taught us what life on the road with a Rock-n-Roll band was all about - not to mention adolescent love and heartbreak.

Come along for the complex climb of Sex and the City to cultural high status, and hear about the impact it had on those who made it: the trek and the series. Plus, we’ll discuss with cast and others how the show’s sexual freedom contributed to its popularity – “Sex and the City,” with an emphasis on the former.
How did the creation of Sex and the City lead to a revolution about what could be said and done on television, and what was going on behind the camera that made it all possible? Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Chris Noth, Willie Garson and other key figures in the show’s extraordinary success share their stories, sagas, and secrets. Sex and the City is available on HBO Go/HBO Now.
