"BEHIND THE MUSIC" RETURNS AFTER LONG BREAK
Released by Miss Tv Girl
After being out of production for nearly seven years, VH1’s Behind the Music series is ready to take the stage once again.
Behind the Music first debuted in 1997. Episodes have presented profiles of musical performers; focusing on their backgrounds, their rise to fame and often the reason(s) for their decline in popularity. The show quickly became a staple of the cable channel and original episodes were produced until 2002. Reruns were aired for several years afterwards but eventually petered out in 2006.
Of the revival plans, Jeff Olde, VH1’s executive VP of original programming, said, “It felt like the time is right. There’s all sorts of new artists on the scene who have emerged and have these great stories. And there’s other artists that we always wanted to do the first time around.”
The first new episode will air on Thursday, September 10th at 10pm. It’ll focus on the self-proclaimed “best rapper alive,” Lil Wayne, and will look at his childhood, his music, and his struggle to center stage
Other upcoming episodes of Behind the Music include pop songstress
Pink (September 17th)
Bobby Brown (September 24th)
Bret Michaels (October 1st)
T.I. (October 8th)
50 Cent (October 13th).
