The PBS Documentaries Prime Video Channel has a fresh slate of new programming right now, with more than a dozen new documentaries available to stream in September, including Ken Burns’ Muhammed Ali. The four part series which was in development for six years, was also written and co-directed by Sarah Burns and David McMahon.

The film follows the life of one of the most consequential men of the 20th century, a three-time heavyweight boxing champion who captivated billions with his combination of speed, agility and power in the ring, as well as his charm, wit and outspokenness outside of it. At the height of his fame, Ali challenged Americans’ racial prejudices, religious biases and notions about what roles celebrities and athletes play in our society, and inspired people all over the world with his message of pride and self-affirmation.

The series features captivating footage, contemporary music, and interviews with memories and insights from eyewitnesses and those who knew the athlete best, including family, friends, journalists, historians, and boxers.
