Judd Apatow Gets Support from Kathy Griffin & Bob Saget at 'Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling' Documentary Premiere!

Judd Apatow is dapper as he poses alongside his pal Bob Saget at the premiere screening for HBO’s The Zen Diaries Of Garry Shandling held at Avalon on Wednesday (March 14) in Hollywood, Calif.

The 50-year-old writer-director-producer was also joined at the event by Kathy Griffin, Jon Lovitz, Vanessa Bayer, Wallace Langham, Mike Judge and Martin Starr.

“I didn’t realize that he had chosen really consciously to be a mentor,” Judd told Variety. “I knew he was available to people and he was really kind and if you said, ‘Will you read my script?’ he would give you notes. But he wrote in his journals that he wanted to help people and he thought that was the win in life, to help people. I was able to get an enormous amount of footage from different people and then I realized ‘Oh, this would make a great Bob Dylan-type two-part documentary’ so we spent about a year searching for footage and just watching footage and then a year editing it.”

The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling is a two-part documentary on the life of the late comedian that features conversations with more than 40 of Shandling’s family and friends – Watch the trailer below!
