Mike Meyers has come out of the shell he has been hiding in to announce that he is teaming up with indie filmmakers A&E to tell the fascinating story of an extraordinary talent manager, and friend, Shep Gordon.

Gordon and Meyers have a long-established relationship, originating from 1991 when Myers made his film debut as the pea-brained Wayne Campbell in Wayne’s World.

The duo will be standing shoulder to shoulder again for Meyers’ directorial debut, documenting Gordon’s thriving career as a talent manager. Representing a flock of household names like Alison Cooper, Blondie, and Luther Vandross, Meyers believes Gordon’s legendary career is a compelling one.

"I met Shep Gordon in 1991 on the set of Wayne's World … he was a perfect combination of Brian Epstein, Marshall McLuhan and Mr. Magoo. I've been trying to get Shep to agree to let me make a movie about him for 10 years. Last year he finally he said yes. I loved him like a brother before we started making this film, and now having sifted through his life and his legacy, I love him even more,” Meyers said in a press release.

Supermensch will be told from the perspective of mega-watt celebrities and friends like Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Anne Murray, Willie Nelson, and Emeril Lagasse.
