Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and his mother Virginia Hanlon Grohl will host a new docu-series called “From Cradle to Stage” on Paramount+.
The six-part series will be based on a book that Virginia published back in 2017 called “From Cradle To Stage: Stories From The Mother Who Rocked And Raised Rock Stars.”
The docu-series will tell stories of the relationship between successful rock stars and their moms. Each episode features a famous performer and his or her mother.
“We are thrilled to re-invent some of our most storied and impactful music franchises, including ‘Behind The Music’ and ‘Yo! MTV Raps’, for Paramount+,” said Bruce Gilmer, ViacomCBS president of music, music talent, programming and events.
He added, “In addition, we will partner with some of the biggest names across the music industry to bring exclusive and unique content to the platform, such as Dave Grohl’s ‘Cradle To Stage’ based on his mom’s critically acclaimed book, and many more to come.”
While the slate of stars is yet to be announced, Virginia’s book featured the moms of Amy Winehouse, Dr. Dre, Beastie Boys‘ Mike D, R.E.M.‘s Michael Stipe, Maroon 5‘s Adam Levine and others.
