Let’s keep it real. Most of us haven’t seen a production of Hamilton and we definitely not the one where OG star/creator Lin-Manuel Miranda was front and center. But that’s okay, because here’s something even better!

For those who don’t know, Hamilton’s a musical that became a pop culture phenomenon. Combing hip-hop with history, it made America’s Founding Fathers relatable and entertaining. If you’re wondering how Miranda made it work, Hamilton’s America  has the answer. The documentary, which will air on PBS, goes behind the scenes to uncover the musical’s secret to success.

It will feature commentary from Miranda, plus director Thomas Kail, comedian Jimmy Fallon, and even President Obama. Hamilton’s impact is undeniable. It won 11 Tony Awards for a reason.

Hamilton’s America debuts October 21 at 9 p.m. ET.
