CNN is about to take an in-depth look at the movies, decade by decade, starting with “The Eighties.” The two-hour installment of the documentary series “The Movies” premieres this Sunday, July 7.

The episode kicks off with Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese dissecting elements of “Raging Bull,” then moves on to a stream of top actors and filmmakers providing insights into the decade in film. Steven Spielberg, Cameron Crowe, Rob Reiner, Ridley Scott, Tom Hanks, Molly Ringwald, Billy Crystal and Holly Hunter are just a few of the insiders who offer their recollections.

To get the story behind the series, TVWeek Open Mic writer Hillary Atkin interviewed CNN VP of Original Series Lizzie Fox, who had a front-row seat overseeing the sprawling production.
