There is news tonight that a new documentary on J.K. Rowling is being prepared by ABC News. This behind the scenes documentary will include “several interviews, the book tour for the final “Harry Potter” installment, and a tour of locations that inspired her characters. It even hints to what the future holds for Harry and his friends.” ABC is working with a UK production company to prepare this documentary which is set to air here in the US in November.

Thanks Sarah!

Go Jo! “It even hints to what the future holds for Harry and his friends.” Very Interesting!

Avatar Image says:

Jo has conducted herself with class and integrity this past week. I, for one, will look forward to seeing this.

Avatar Image says:

Yay! How exciting!

From that statement I think that it’s going to be a “rehash” of the ITV doco that was on at Christmas. Does anyone else agree? It’s not a bad thing but it would be good to know if they do use the same footage.

Oh, this should be wonderful!

Avatar Image says:

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Woho!!! I can’t wait for this to come out, hopefully some of her friends, like for example Mell, will make an appearance.

Avatar Image says:

Ooh! I can’t wait for November! This is going to be awesome!

Avatar Image says:

Yes yes yes!! This plus the HBP movie in November should be awesome! :DDDD

Avatar Image says:

Noooo!! Any chance it will be available on the internet like the British one was?

Avatar Image says:

does anyone have a link to the british one? or a torrent download?

Avatar Image says:

This almost sounds like a rehash of the BBC documentary with some additional footage by ABC. Probably coverage of the trial.

Avatar Image says:

Well, it says they’re working with someone in the UK, so maybe it’ll have some of the same stuff that was in the British one. Which would be okay, ‘cause then I could get it on tape, lol. Still waiting for PBS to show it.

I hope ABC is not as restrictive as ITV was in allowing it to be up on youtube or similar. I posted up JK Year in her life when it was shown here on ITV and after 12 hours youtube took it down. I was sad because so many of you wanted to see it (of course!). Now we are going to be in the same boat outside US! I hope we can see it in Leaky video gallery or youtube. By the way, if anyone wants to see JK year in life, I could try put it up on different site like Metacafe tonight, ITV probably relaxed their restrictons by now.

Avatar Image says:

As long as it is on YouTube so that I can watch it. There never air Harry Potter / JK Rowling documentaries in Australia :(

Avatar Image says:

This really made my day, it’s currently 5:57 AM, and I’m dreading to go to school, and to hear such news as this actually excites me. Good thing it’s going to air in the US, we’ve got loads of fans and I guarantee that someone will record the documentary and place it online, just like the Year in the Life with J.K. Rowling documentary. Wooh! Can’t wait!

Avatar Image says:

I guess the format of it will be similar to the ITV one, but it will be different. It’s focusing round the tour Jo did after DH came out. As I recall, I don’t think there was anything of that in the ITV doco. If I’m not right on that, correct me ; )

Avatar Image says:

YES! I can’t wait! I like all documentarys about Jo. I always cry! guys…it will be on youtube!

Avatar Image says:

Niiice!

Finally some fun HP news! I’m putting my thoughts on the trial on hold and we’ll just have to wait and see what the judge says.

In the meantime: boohoo, I don’t have any US channels on my telly! :’-(

@ Moose and Professor Potter

I actually did see the ITV documentary on YouTube, not that long ago- a month or two. They had shown it in our country, but I was very disappointed because it didn’t give us much: turned out that they had cut lots of it out to be able to put it in their half hour programme!!!! :-O

So I checked YouTube and it’s in five pieces, under: JK Rowling, A Year In The Life Of

You got 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5 and 5/5

Enjoy!... :-D

Avatar Image says:

Oh please. I agree with “enough is enough” several posts back!

Avatar Image says:

What do you mean by “enough is enough”? confused

Avatar Image says:

Jo is still a great person and author and after this past week,reading and listening to what she said,did…i am full of admiration of the way she has handled this issue…

Avatar Image says:

Mrs. H.Weasley, I think, by ‘enough is enough’ they mean that there’s been enough JKR interviews on television. I personally think that, as a fan, one can’t get tired of it, because you never know what extra stuff is mentioned that you did not know before! Now if the documentary would turn out to be nothing new, I’d agree, but now we don’t know that, so I greatly look forward to it..! Who knows what we’ll find out!!

Avatar Image says:

This is the same as the ITV1 version;

I think it will just be the itv one, the last ABC documentary on Jo way back in 2001 was exactly the same one as a BBC one, with a different narrator and artwork for the American books edited in

Avatar Image says:

Oh! Yea! Something positive and truthful to look forward to! It will sure help get things going for the HBP opening!

I hope they will mention a lot of the charity and philantropic causes that she is involved with.

Avatar Image says:

Awesome! (As long as I can watch it online that is …)

Avatar Image says:

Emmy: Is that complete, because I had to split mine in 7 pieces when I had put it up? I think that goes to show, that after a while, restrictions are relaxed. And sorry to hear they cut it when it was broadcasted in your country…why they do that? Was all the scenes involving JK’s childhood haircut too horrifying to show on prime time TV…

I do hope I get to see the new one. And as Dorene says, as a fan, cant get enough of JK interviews. I’d listen to her talk about anything.

Avatar Image says:

Anything at this moment that would be positive would be appreciated, to get attention focused where it belongs, and not on those who steal it.

I just hope it’s a decent interview that respects Jo’s work, and brings some new insight on future plans. Please, Documentary Writers – skip this trial nonsense – we are so fed up with it – and move on to something more relevant and note worthy of Jo’s work, her charities, and her new writing.

@ Professor Potter

Yes, the ITV docu on YouTube that I found is, as far as I could tell, the whole thing. Not in 7, but in 5 pieces. Unless I missed two, but I don’t think so… I should check again to make sure though.

Avatar Image says:

@ Professor Potter

Well, just checked part 5/5, and it’s got a short end credit so it’s definitely all on there until the end, unless they sneakily took out a minute or so here and there, but I’m assuming it’s the whole thing :-D

Avatar Image says:

LOL! Just in time to support the HBP movie publicity machine. Wonder what happened to NBC’s domination of all things HP the past few years?

btw: ITV documentary was up on YouTube almost immediately, and has been there ever since.

Avatar Image says:

Absolutely!!! Bring on all things JKR!!! She makes me proud just to be a human being because I can say I am the same species as her.

Avatar Image says:

Ha. I called it. I had a feeling it would just be the ITV one. It’s great that they are doing it though.

For people that haven’t seen the ITV doco the link was posted on this site. If you look under “JK Rowling” news then it should be here. I watched it at Christmas off their website. I could still be there.

Avatar Image says:

YAY!! I can’t wait! Now if only they’d play the ITV on here…....

Avatar Image says:

Well I hope so that it will be put on internet because I don’t think so that it would be send in Macedonia or on any programme on Cable Tv. If anyone know that this documentary would be put on internet please let me know. I simply love Jo!!!

Avatar Image says:

This is so awesome!!!! I can’t wait for it!

Avatar Image says:

omg! I cant wait! This is so great! Can’t wait!!!! Live, love Harry Potter!!

Avatar Image says:

Yay! Excited!!!

Avatar Image says:

Documentaries are usually interresting to watch and I don’t anticipate this one is no different. But how Jo can cope with all this media attention and TV cameras following her all around is beyond me.

So I look forward to this. If we’re lucky, it even gets aired outside the US. :)

Avatar Image says:

Well it sounds good but I hope that it’s put on the internet. I’m looking forward to watching it.

Avatar Image says:

I’m looking forward to it, as I never did see the iTV one.

It’s been a long time since Leaky’s had an update. Slow news day(s), yeah?

Avatar Image says:

Thank you very much for the information Emmy. I didn’t even bother to look on YouTube since Professor Potter said that it had been taken off, but thank you for letting me know it was in fact on there. Much appreciation.

Avatar Image says:

hehe Danielle I was thinking the same thing-slow news day today! Even when there is news, it’s mostly about the trial. I wish there was some movie news at least. I miss the good ole days when we’d wait for the “do not disturb” sign to disappear and the Wombats…. But back on topic-I’m eagerly waiting for the documentry; I didn’t get a chance to catch it on iTV!

Avatar Image says:

OMG!!.....I soo can not wait for it!! Jo is one of the most brilliant person ever!

Avatar Image says:

I hope it’ll be available online! I think it’ll be different from the ITv documentary, maybe they’ll have some bits from it, but it won’t be entirely too similar. Can’t wait!

Avatar Image says:

I’ll have to keep a mental note of this…lol, I hope I don’t forget to record it.

How exciting and HBP too, yea!!

Avatar Image says:

A trial is a trial and it brings to the surface the worst on everyone envolved. Let’s not let that damage the way we love the fan sites and Jo’s work. She rocks! We, the fans, rule! And that’s that :)

Avatar Image says:

GO ABC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! man they rock… best election coverage u will find for these primaries!!! lolz

Avatar Image says:

read!!

MUSIC FROM THE DOCUMENTARY:

I saw a post that Professor Potter and a few other ppl are looking for the music from the ITV “A Year In The Life Of…JK Rowling” documentary.

You are right in saying the music was an original score composed by Paul Leonard-Morgan (BAFTA award winner composer for film, TV and adverts).

You can listen to and DOWNLOAD some of the JK Rowling tracks for FREE on his website: www.paulleonardmorgan.com (in the “extras” section, under “downloads”)

Enjoy,
