2 It is time to honour another comedic legend, Garry Shandling, through The Zen Diaries Of Garry Shandling.

The documentary, exclusive on HBO, features four decades' worth of TV appearances and personal journals, private letters, candid home audio and video footage, and 40 of Shandling's family and friends -- including Conan O'Brien, Jon Favreau and Sarah Silverman -- that reveal Shandling's brilliant mind.
