Paramount Network Releases ‘I Am Paul Walker’ Documentary

I Am Paul Walker is a feature-length documentary film exploring the life and legacy of actor Paul Walker, the Southern California native who cut his teeth as a child actor before breaking out in the blockbuster Fast and Furious movie franchise. Sadly, Walker’s life was tragically cut short back in 2013 when he died as the passenger in a car accident. The Fast and Furious faithful, both the fans and the folks intimately involved in the production, have embraced Walker’s memory in a number of ways, and now they’ll be able to celebrate him once again with this new documentary.

Featuring interviews with those who knew Paul best both professionally and personally and using an extensive archive of rarely seen candid video and still photographs provided by family and friends of the late actor, I Am Paul Walker explores Paul’s private side alongside a wildly successful film career.  His devotion to his family, his fascination for surfing and auto racing, his passion for marine biology and sharks, his dedication to humanitarian work through his NGO, Reach Out Worldwide, and his love for his daughter define the character of the man behind one of the most wildly successful film franchises of all time.
