Here's a glimpse at Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent. Co-produced by CNN Films and directed by Lydia Tenaglia of Zero Point Zero, the production company behind Anthony Bourdain's CNN series Parts Unknown, the doc shines a spotlight on Tower's rise through the 1970s and '80s and his sudden retirement.

The Last Magnificent features "key interviews with celebrities and celebrity chefs," according to a synopsis for the trailer. Among the famous faces in the two-minute clip are Bourdain, Martha Stewart, Ruth Reichl, Mario Batali, Wolfgang Puck, and Jonathan Waxman. The whole thing is bookended with some strange lines from Tower himself.

"What are my great expectations, and what have I done?" the chef asks at the end of the trailer. "Well, that remains to be seen."

The Last Magnificent premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, and it should be released across North America early next year, according to Variety.
