    Reports: Boeing Doc Cleared for Takeoff

    The Chicago-based planemaker and its embattled 737 Max jet will reportedly be the focus of a new documentary series produced by Ron Howard's Imagine Entertainment. Filmmaker Rory Kennedy will spearhead the project, which is expected to shed new light on the faces behind Boeing's chaotic scramble following the two deadly crashes of the since-grounded aircraft. It's unclear when the as-yet untitled series will premiere, or how it will be distributed.

    What are Kennedy's credits? Her 2007 film Ghosts of Abu Ghraib snagged an Emmy, while her documentary feature Last Days in Vietnam was nominated for an Oscar in 2015.
