New Trailer for Bill Simmons' Excellent 'Music Box' Doc Series on HBO
"This is your world. You can do whatever you want to do." You don't want to miss these! HBO has revealed another official trailer for the superb music documentary HBO collection called Music Box. Developed and produced by Bill Simmons, co-creator of the very popular 30 for 30 doc series on ESPN, this new Music Box series takes us back through music history with distinct documentary films. The first one already opened - Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage about the 90s music festival. And a number of others just premiered at the 2021 Toronto Film Festival. They're set to stream on HBO this fall: Jagged debuts on November 18th, Don't Try to Understand debuts on November 25th, Listening to Kenny G debuts on December 2nd, Mr. Saturday Night debuts on December 9th, and Juice Wrld: Into the Abyss debuts on December 16th. I've already seen a few of these docs and they're SO damn good, some of the best doc films out of any I've seen this year. The Kenny G one especially really won me over. All six of these films are worth watching.
Here's the main trailer (+ poster) for HBO + Bill Simmons' doc series Music Box, direct from YouTube:
