The Alison Ellwood-directed film features “full access” to the band, along with “candid interviews and archival footage to tell the real story of their meteoric rise to fame and the journeys, triumphs, laughter and struggles along the way,” producers said of the film.

Guitarist Jane Wiedlin tweeted that she was “so excited” to share news of the documentary.
The Go-Go’s made history as the inaugural multi-platinum-selling all-female band who played their own instruments, penned their own tracks and had a Number One album. The band’s breakout moment stemmed from their 1981 debut album Beauty and the Beat, which produced classic hits “Our Lips Are Sealed” and “We Got the Beat.” The all-female rock band’s music also features in a new Broadway musical Head Over Heels.
In addition to The Go-Go’s, Showtime has acquired recent music documentaries Life in 12 Bars, a film about Eric Clapton, which premieres tonight February 10th and the four-part series Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men.
