March 6 (UPI) -- Apple TV+ is teasing the new documentary Steve! (martin) a documentary in 2 pieces.

The streaming service shared a trailer for the two-part documentary Wednesday featuring actor and comedian Steve Martin, 78.

Steve! (martin) explores Martin's life and career from two distinct points of view: "Then," which chronicles his early struggles and meteoric rise to revolutionize stand-up before walking away at 35, and "Now," which focuses on the present day, with Martin in the golden years of his career.

The documentary features never-before-seen footage and raw insights into Martin's personal and professional trials and triumphs.

Fellow comedian Jerry Seinfeld had nothing but praise for Martin in the trailer.

"This guy was getting people so happy," Seinfeld said. "He's the most idolized comedian ever."

Martin himself reflects on how, "My whole life is backwards. How did I go from riddled with anxiety in my 30s, to to 75 and really happy?"
