US producer Bunim/Murray is making Living With Def Leppard, a documentary series following the rock band on tour.
The Banijay-owned US producer will join forces with events firm AEG and the Hard Rock Hotel to make the series. There is not a broadcaster attached, but a Bunim/Murray rep told TBI the producer is pitching the project to US channels this week.
The multi-episode project will capture the band on stage and as they prepare for a series of concerts that took place at the Hard Rock venue in Las Vegas earlier this year.
Bunim/Murray will pitch the show as “the band’s story told by the band” and said that the docu-series format used could be replicated for other music acts. “The docu-series has the potential to become a signature series, which will showcase multiple bands, all experienced through a similar format and storytelling technique,” it said.
Banijay International is expected to distribute the finished series internationally.
