Starring Adam West, A Documentary About the Ups and Downs of the ‘Batman’ Star’s Career

Starring Adam West is a documentary that charts the career of Batman star Adam West, from his rise to the iconic 1960s television superhero to his struggle to reestablish himself and eventual reinvention as the mayor on the animated series Family Guy. The film was created with funds from a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2011. The documentary is available to purchase or rent on Amazon.

In 1966 Adam West was on top of the world. The farm boy from Walla Walla was on a meteoric rise to fame as the star of the ABC series Batman. But after three seasons, the series was cancelled, leaving West typecast as the caped crusader. But Adam West never gave up. Through good years and bad he continued to follow his passion, pursue his craft, and fight his way back. “Starring Adam West” is the story of a Hollywood survivor, a family man, and the loyal fans who will stop at nothing to see their super hero justly rewarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
