NEW YORK (AP) -- Billy Joel, Maria Shriver and Samuel L. Jackson -- baby boomers all -- will be among those featured in an upcoming PBS documentary about the post-World War II generation.

PBS announced Thursday that "American Masters: The Boomer List" will air Sept. 23 on member stations. The 90-minute production, directed by filmmaker-photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, will include 19 notable public figures. Their years of birth represent each of the years commonly associated with the baby boom era, 1946-64. The list also includes Rosie O'Donnell, Tommy Hilfiger and Steve Wozniak.

Greenfield-Sanders' portraits of the interviewees will be included in a companion coffee table book and in an exhibit at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. "The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders" will run at the Newseum from Sept. 26 through June 2015.
