Alexa Foreman

Alexa Foreman has used her skills as a researcher and producer primarily at Turner Classic Movies for over 25 years starting with the launch of the network in 1994. While there, she was an integral part of the Peabody-award-winning channel, which specialized in airing uncut and commercial-free classic movies. She worked with Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz on a daily basis. Additionally, she has worked with Meryl Streep, John Gielgud, Anthony Hopkins, Gregory Peck, Claire Bloom, and other notables on assembling Star of the Month pieces, and she interviewed seven of the original Munchkins for her documentary Memories of Oz. She has interviewed over 100 stars, directors, writers, and editors for the TCM Archival Project.

She is the 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 a contributor to Leading Ladies, Leading Men and Leading Couples.

She has written, directed and produced 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 premiered at the TCM Classic Film Festival in Los Angeles in April 2018. It has since been screened at the Hollywood Heritage Museum and was accepted as an Official Selection at both the Dallas Film Festival and the Sedona Film Festival. Scandal had its television premiere on January 6, 2020 on TCM, and it is currently licensed to the network. 

She was the lead researcher for All That Heaven Allows, a biography of Rock Hudson that was published by HarperCollins in December 2018. The book was named by Sight and Sound as one of the year’s ten best film biographies. In 2023, HBO Documentary Films adapted it for the screen as Rock Hudson: All that Heaven Allowed. It is currently being adapted as a narrative feature film.

Her latest project as a research advisor was for the 2023 book Warner Bros.: 100 Years of Storytelling from Running Press.

Currently, she is back at TCM as a freelance researcher.
