LOS ANGELES, CA (CelebrityAccess) – Variety has reported that Live Nation Productions is developing its first TV project, a docuseries called “From Cradle to Stage.”
Based on the book of the same name written by Virginia Hanlon Grohl, mother of Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl, the series, which is being developed alongside Endeavour Content, will feature excerpts from years of interviews with the mothers of other globally successful artists including Pharrell, Adam Levine, Tom Morello and more as well as Hanlon Grohl’s own family photographs and stories.
“At Live Nation Productions, we are proud to help artist’s share their stories in the most authentic way possible,” said Live Nation Productions President of Production, Film & Television, Heather Parry. “Virginia’s book aligns perfectly with that vision, highlighting an array of incredibly strong women, sharing true and unique perspectives of the mothers who raised some of our most celebrated rock stars. I am a Foo Fighters fan and have known Dave Grohl since my days at MTV, so it’s incredibly gratifying to be partnering with Virginia and Endeavor Content to help bring this project to life.”
“I’m excited to introduce the viewing public to the strong, loving women who have supported the insistent dreams of their musical sons and daughters, “said Virginia Hanlon Grohl. “To Sandi Clark, who learned the music business from a book and launched her son’s career – and Mary Weinrib, who had to cancel her own dreams of an education to allow her son to thrive with RUSH. To Janis Winehouse, who recognized her daughter’s extreme talent, but was helpless to control the demons that brought that brilliant career to a tragic end. Their backgrounds vary greatly, but they have so much in common.”
“From Cradle to Stage” will be executive produced by Heather Parry of Live Nation Productions, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, Michael Rapino of Live Nation and Dave Grohl.
