Surely You Can’t Be Serious: The True Story of Airplane! is a first-ever history of the making of the 1980 comedy classic Airplane! by DAVID ZUCKER, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker, the writers and directors of the hit film. Made with a modest $3.5 million budget, Airplane! premiered July 2, 1980, and went on to make nearly $200 million in sales – and a book’s worth of hilarious lines and absurd comedic situations. Joining Zucker in conversation is author DAVE BARRY.
