AXS TV has greenlit a new documentary series, “Music’s Greatest Mysteries,” which aims to shine a light on the unique and enigmatic stories that shaped the history of music. The series is in production and is slated to debut in the fourth quarter of this year.
The logline: Spanning a wide variety of eras and genres—from Hip Hop and Rockabilly, to Country, Grunge, and everything in-between — “Music’s Greatest Mysteries” guides viewers on an immersive journey investigating the infamous myths and larger-than-life personalities which have come to define the music industry throughout the decades. Separating fact from fiction, Music’s Greatest Mysteries presents a fresh perspective on stories both well known and slightly more obscure, unearthing hidden gems and long-forgotten lore with the help of music icons and noted experts. Blending insightful commentary with rare archive footage, the series seeks to answer the “whys” and “hows” of each new topic until the whole truth is revealed.
Six episodes of “Music’s Greatest Mysteries” have been ordered. The series is jointly produced by Texas Crew Productions and Hideout Pictures, with Chip Rives, David Karabinas, Brad Bernstein, Shannon Houchins, and Trevor O’Neil serving as executive producers.
