A documentary created by editor Brandon Farley attempts to shed some light on those decisions. Chappelle’s Show: The 50 Million Dollar Question is a 2-hour film comprised of interviews featuring Chappelle and co-creator Neal Brennan. The two people behind Chappelle’s Show explain how corporate interests and pressure to succeed led to the fall of one of the greatest sketch comedy shows in TV history.
