Alexa Foreman has used her skills as a researcher and producer primarily at Turner Classic Movies for over 20 years, starting with the launch of the network in 1994. While there, she was an integral part of the channel earning a Peabody Award. She worked with Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz on a daily basis, and when information was needed—like how many Oscar nominations a film has earned or how many husbands Elizabeth Taylor had—she was the go-to-gal.
Alexa has worked with Meryl Streep, John Gielgud, Anthony Hopkins, Lee Grant, Claire Bloom and others on assembling Star of the Month pieces, and interviewed 7 of the original Munchkins for her short documentary “Memories of Oz.” In addition, she has interviewed over 100 stars, directors, writers and editors for the TCM Archival Project.
She is author of Women in Motion published in 1983, and co-author of In the Picture: Production Stills from the TCM Archives from 2004, as well as contributor to Leading Couples. She is the researcher for the new book to be published by HarperCollins in 2018, All That Heaven Allows: A Biography of Rock Hudson.
Currently she is back at TCM as a freelance researcher, and is executive producing a documentary entitled Scandal: The Trial of Mary Astor, which concerns actress Mary Astor and her 1936 fight to gain custody of her daughter. The documentary premieres at the TCM Film Festival in Los Angeles in April 2018.
