Nirvana and Pearl Jam set to appear in new show about Hall Of Fame inductees
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is full of rich stories and tales that detail the history of modern music. From celebrating artists who’ve pathed the way for developments in the genre, to ensuring iconic pieces of gear get the home they deserve, the Hall Of Fame is a fixture for rock fans everywhere.
Now, the historic organisation is set to get its own celebration on the small screen, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Hall Of Fame is set to team up with the Wilshire Studios to develop a series called Immortals.
The docuseries is set to pair renowned film and TV directors with Rock Hall inductees like Nirvana and Pearl Jam, exploring their cultural significance and impact. No network has picked up the series yet however, Wilshire Studios will shop Immortals to streaming platforms.
If you’ve never gotten the opportunity to visit the Hall Of Fame, Immortals is set to give rock fans an inside look into its archives and collection of artefacts.
“The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is such an amazing brand to be able to partner with,” said BJ Levin, senior vp development at Wilshire Studios. “Their wealth of untapped research material and resources will allow this series to stand among some of the great music doc series.”
This year’s induction ceremony will stream on Amazon, this July 11th and will showcase the inductions of Bon Jovi, The Moody Blues, Nina Simone, and The Cars.
It was recently revealed that former Pearl Jam members were snubbed from the band’s Hall Of Fame plaque, after their induction in 2017. The plaque omitted the members, Dave Abbruzzese and Jack Irons, with fans expressing their disappointment at the situation.
In March this year, it was revealed the Hall Of Fame would culminate live performances from induction ceremonies over the years into a concert film, released as Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame: In Concert.
