I am an absolute huge fan of The Go-Go's (Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Caffey, Jane Wiedlin, Kathy Valentine and Gina Schock) who are the subject of a fascinating new documentary which will air on Showtime on August 1 (according to the last report anyway). I hope it will be released on DVD as well.




*Polygram Entertainment, the film and television production and development division of Universal Music Group, today announced four new feature documentary projects at Sir Lucian Grainge’s 2019 Artist Showcase, revealing the next wave of titles that will soon be available in theaters, on television networks and streaming services.


Directed by Alison Ellwood and underpinned by full access to the band, THE GO-GO’S is a candid archive-rich feature documentary that assesses the iconic group’s place in pop history and examines the personalities and dynamics behind their rise, fall and numerous reincarnations.

UMG’s Head of Film & Television Development David Blackman introduced the film, with The Go-Go’s band members Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, and Kathy Valentine in the audience.*
