If you’re a fan of Steven Spielberg’s work—and let’s face it, if you enjoyed Jaws, Indiana Jones, or E.T., you probably are—you’ll be interested to know that the director himself will be the focus of a new movie.

HBO has tapped 14-time Emmy-winning producer and director Susan Lacy for Spielberg, which will run the gamut on the director’s career—starting with his childhood and ending with his star-studded run as one of the world’s best-known film directors, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Per EW, Lacy has a lot of material to work with, interviewing Spielberg for 30 hours on a number of topics, both professional and personal.

Spielberg will also include bits from the director’s family members and colleagues, and include a nice helping of behind-the-scenes footage from Spielberg’s various films.

The documentary premieres on Oct. 7.
