May 9, 2024 – The documentary, Caregiving, is in production and is set to air in 2025 on PBS stations.  

The film will examine both systemic issues within the care system – where more than 50 million Americans provide unpaid care to family members – as well as tell personal stories of people who care for loved ones.

Cooper’s involvement also stems from personal experience: “When my father was diagnosed with cancer, that was a wake-up call for me, one that really opened my eyes to the world of caregiving,” the Oscar nominee said in a statement. “Everyone will end up caring for a loved one at some point in their life. The level of loneliness can overcome an individual going through this – it’s overwhelming. Raising this conversation on a national level will help, and together, I believe we can make a difference. I’m extremely proud to produce this documentary. Together, we can help raise the banner for caregivers.”
