"You Are My Friend" is a biographical film about Rogers, the Pittsburgher whose public television children's show "Mr. Rogers Neighborhood" became an American cultural touchstone for decades, and his friendship with a journalist.
Portions of the movie are being filmed in and around Pittsburgh. It is scheduled to be released in October 2019.
