London – Independent producer Nevision has signed a significant deal with multi award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions to co-produce Rolling Stone: Stories FromThe Edge, the documentary about the seminal music magazine for HBO U.S. in association with Sky Arts in the UK.

 

Kew Media Group, a partner with Jigsaw Productions, is on board as global distribution partner and secured the UK broadcast deal with Sky. The series will be launched internationally at MIPCOM 2017.

 

The big-budget series is currently in production, with completion scheduled for September 2017. The show is set to air on HBO in early November, and on Sky Arts on 10th November 2017, marking the publication’s landmark 50th anniversary.

 

Jigsaw’s Alex Gibney and Blair Foster will direct and will also act as executive producers along with Wenner Media’s Jann Wenner, Co-Founder and Publisher of Rolling Stone and Nevision’s James Cabourne. Jigsaw’s Richard Perello and Stacey Offman will Co-Executive Produce. Rolling Stone: Stories From The Edge will be available internationally as a 6 x 42’ series.

 

Rolling Stone: Stories From The Edge will show the emergence of the magazine, the superb and ground-breaking work of its writers and its impact on society. Rather than being a celebration of a business enterprise, the documentary will chronicle some of the great journalistic stories, storytellers and music makers of the last fifty years. It’s an insider’s look at how some incredibly talented writers reflected the ethic of rock ‘n’ roll culture.
