Rankin/RollingStones.comThe upcoming documentary celebrating The Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary will air on HBO sometime in the fall. Larry Lombardo, the cable network's president of programming, made the announcement Wednesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Los Angeles.
"This documentary has the full involvement of the four current band members…as well as the former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor," Lombardo said in a statement. "We'll follow the band from their early club days through their arrival as the greatest band in the world."
As previously reported, the project is being directed by Brett Morgen, one of the filmmakers behind the acclaimed 2002 documentary The Kid Stays in the Picture, about movie producer Robert Evans. Morgen has been given unprecedented access to The Stones and their archives, and interviewed the group's members at length.
"I've conducted 50-plus hours of interviews so far," the director told Rolling Stone back in March. "By the time we're done, they will be the most extensive group interviews they've ever done."
The director also shot footage of the band rehearsing in a New Jersey studio a few months back for use in the film.
A title and premiere date for the Stones documentary have yet to be announced.
