Bill Simmons’ ‘Music Box’ Doc Strand Renewed For Season 2 At HBO – Deadline

The six films on the top list were Woodstock 99: Peace, Love and Fury, directed by Garrett Price, which premiered in July, Alanis Morissette documentary Jagged, directed by Allison Kleiman, DMX: Don’t Try to Understand, directed by Christopher Frison, Listen To Kenny G, directed by Penny Lane, Mr. Saturday Night, directed by John Maggio and Tommy Oliver Film about rapper Juice WRLD: Into The Abyss.

Cancellation/Renewal Points Card: TV Shows Expired or Continuing in the 2020-21 Season

All films have been produced by Ringer Films, the production division of Spotify-owned cultural site Simmons and podcast company.

Simmons, who was part of creating ESPN’s 30-for-30 series, told Deadline earlier this summer about how the Music Box came about and how putting together a series of music documentaries is different from making sports films.

Bill Simmons said, “Season 1 exceeded our expectations, and we were pleased with the high level of our films and our experiences with the talents who made them. We’ve built a brand with a unique perspective, and now we want to continue to grow and work with HBO and great directors.”

“The talented storytellers behind every film in the Music Box series reveal amazing and memorable moments in the music that have much deeper stories to tell. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Bill Simmons.” Lisa Heller and Nancy Abraham, co-chairs of HBO Documentary Films added: and The Ringer team to bring another exciting season of Music Box to HBO.”
