A documentary on the Rolling Stones is being put together by HBO, coinciding with the band's 50th anniversary and carrying the title, The Rolling Stones: The Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World.
"This is all done as part of the band's 50th anniversary," said HBO President of Programming Michael Lombardo in a statement. "This documentary has the full involvement of the four current band members - Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ron - as well as the former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. We'll follow the band from their early club days through their arrival as the greatest band in the world."
Brett Morgan, director of The Kid Stays in the Picture, will direct the documentary. He described the production process to Rolling Stone magazine in March:
"We've been looking under every rock, going through their archives. It will be music never heard before, and I've conducted 50-plus hours of interviews so far. By the time we're done, they will be the most extensive group interviews they've ever done."
The broadcast date of the new documentary will be announced at a later date.
