A Rolling Stones Documentary Series Is On It Way
In celebration of the Rolling Stones‘ 60th anniversary, a special four-part docuseries, My Life as a Rolling Stone, is now set for a U.S. premiere Aug. 7 on Epix.
The show originally debuted by the BBC in March and each episode will focus one of the band’s four core members, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and the late Charlie Watts, showcasing their personalities, musical brilliance, and cultural impact. The series aims to reveal their creativity, inspirations, and how they individually and collectively have overcome their obstacles.
Directed by Oliver Murray (The Quiet One), and Clare Tavernor (Keith Richards: A Culture Show Special), and executive produced by Mercury Studios’ Steve Condie. It will feature contributions from the likes of Rod Stewart, Tina Turner, Steven Tyler, Chrissie Hynde and Slash.
Epix president Michael Wright said in a statement:
“Compelling music docuseries have become a pillar of Epix’s slate of premium original programming, and My Life as a Rolling Stone is a perfect addition to that mix.
“This distinctive documentary captures the raw and organic energy that defines The Rolling Stones and tells the gripping, epic story of their journey. I am excited for viewers to experience this legendary band as few ever have before.”
Meanwhile, the Rolling Stones were recently forced to, respectively, postpone and cancel two shows of their ongoing European tour after Jagger tested positive for COVID-19. The trek will resume Tuesday in Milan, Italy.
