Dave Grohl to produce a documentary series along with his mom
Dave Grohl and his mother, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, are producing a documentary series.
The show will be based on Virginia's book From the Cradle to the Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars.
Variety reports Live Nation Productions will lead the TV adaption of the book, while Virginia and Dave will serve as executive producers.
The book, published last year, features interviews with mothers of other rock stars about raising famous musicians. She talked to the mothers of Beastie Boys' Mike D, REM's Michael Stipe, Tom Morello and more.
"I’m excited to introduce the viewing public to the strong, loving women who have supported the insistent dreams of their musical sons and daughters," Virginia tells Variety. "Their backgrounds vary greatly, but they have so much in common. Viewers will join all the mothers around a table when they meet for the first time at a celebratory dinner where secrets and stories will be shared and compared."
The Foo Fighters frontman also comments on the project.
"I’m beyond excited to join in on the next step of my mother’s project to explore the stories of other musicians who were as fortunate as me, having been raised by such amazing women," he says. "Plus…I owe her one."
