Video Interview: Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce Talk Spector (Exclusive)

A person’s tragic death can often times overshadow the successes they found in life, especially when they live in the public eye. That’s unfortunately the case for late actress and model, Lana Clarkson, whose fame rose following her harrowing, untimely death in 2003.

Infamous record producer Phil Spector was eventually convicted of murdering the once promising film star and sentenced to 19 years to life in prison in 2009. He ultimately died in a prison hospital in 2021.

The actress and musician’s fates are chronicled in the new four-part docuseries, ‘Spector.’ The documentary, which was directed by Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce, is now playing On Demand and on streaming platforms for Showtime and the Showtime App.

‘Spector’ examines how the destinies of Spector and Clarkson became intertwined with the report of a fatal shooting of a woman at the French chateau style mansion in Los Angeles owned by the eccentric music producer. The victim was Clarkson, a charismatic and once prolific movie actress and model whom he had met just that night at the House of Blues in L.A.Through the lens of this notorious crime and the infamous trial which followed, the docuseries peels back the layers of what actually happened that night to tell the stories of both Clarkson and the man who was convicted of her murder. In doing so, ‘Spector’ re-examines the life and career of an important yet enigmatic cultural figure of the 20th century – a man who responsible for countless hit records, including ‘Be My Baby,’ ‘Da Do Run Run’ and ‘You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling’ – and a bygone era of Hollywood and the music industry.

Argott and Joyce generously took the time recently to talk about helming ‘Spector’ together during an exclusive interview over Zoom. Watch the full interview in the video above.
