John F. Kennedy Jr. Documentary ‘I Am JFK Jr.’ Reflects On His Life

Network Entertainment’s Derik Murray produced the JFK film in the same form as his other “I Am” movies, including I Am Bruce Lee, I Am Chris Farley and I Am Evel Knievel.

“John Kennedy Jr. was destined for greatness, the heir apparent to his father’s legacy, and he knew that,” Murray said.

The film looks back on JFK Jr.’s time as an assistant district attorney in New York, his 1988 People magazine Sexiest Man Alive cover and his 1995 debut as publisher of the magazine George.
