David Foster is a man of many hats. As a musician, songwriter, arranger, and producer, he has had more success in the music industry than most. His 47 Grammy nominations and 16 wins position him as one of the greatest music producers that has ever lived. This documentary profiles his 30-year career and captures Foster as he prepares for his next great venture—Broadway. The setting presents a new set of challenges as Foster finds the collaborative process starkly different from the independent process of producing. Still, he won’t leave New York City until one of his productions is on a Broadway marquee. In DAVID FOSTER: OFF THE RECORD, you’ll meet the musical genius behind classics such as After the Love Has Gone, I Have Nothing, and All By Myself. Listen to interviews of living legends, including Quincy Jones, Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, and more. Journey into the mind of this prolific producer as he tries his hand at Broadway, determined to have another hit and immortalize himself in EGOT history. — R.R.
